FREEPORT (WIFR) -- The Rosecrance Foundation has been awarded a $4,000 grant from the John M. Drogosz Youth Substance Abuse Prevention/Treatment Memorial Fund by the Freeport Community Foundation.
Grants made from this fund are directed to non-profit organizations with educational, prevention and/or treatment of substance abuse programs focused on helping youth ages 21 or younger in Stephenson, Jo Daviess, and Carroll Counties.
The Rosecrance Foundation will use the grant to support the construction of a basketball court at Hillman House, the long-term residential recovery home for adolescent boys. The new basketball court will significantly enhance the opportunity for recreational therapy on-site while offering an important outlet for teamwork, physical fitness, confidence-building activity and fun.
