Serene Foundation understands the tremendous effort, sacrifice and persistance required to build a healthy lifestyle of sobriety. It is very difficult for many in early recovery to find a way to continue their sobriety efforts after primary treatment due to family strain, job concerns, and financial stress. Serene Foundation was developed to assist individuals with continuing their sobriety efforts in a way that has been proven to enhance the liklihood of long term sobriety.
Serene Foundation eleviates the financial stress of following a recommended continuum of care for addiction treatment. Micro loans issued by Serene Foundation can help an individual to concentrate on their sobriety effort long enough to create a very solid foundation upon which a long-term healthy lifestyle of sobriety can be achieved.
Serene Foundation helps people to help themselves by providing some financial relief in the early days of recovery, and by oversite of treatment goals and objectives which include finding a job, maintaining a recovery program, and staying involved in a fellowship of similarly experienced recovering individuals.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Serene Foundation issues a micro loan in the form of progress payments to approved transitional sober living agencies. In turn, the transitional sober living agencies provide neccessary counseling, job skills training, job placement, evaluation, and performance benchmarks. Once you have secured a job, you will pay back the micro loan in affordable monthly payments at a low interest rate.
Current Annual Percentage Rate: 10.00%
