About the Susan B. Anthony Center:
In 1995, the Junior League of Greater Ft. Lauderdale founded the Susan B Anthony Recovery Center to address the needs of mothers who suffered from substance addiction. Their goals were to remove the barriers for women entering treatment and to prevent their children from being placed in the over burdened foster care system. When a needs assessment was conducted, the number one need identified in Broward County was to establish a residential treatment program where women could keep their children with them while receiving the treatment they needed to learn to live their lives clean and sober. The first home was opened September 30, 1995 with five women and six children. The Center was named after the founder of the Junior League of Greater Ft. Lauderdale (in 1937).
Based in Pembroke Pines, the Center is the only residential treatment facility in Broward County that allows the children to reside with their mothers. This removes the number one reason for women to not enter treatment as it prevents their children from being place in the Foster Care system.
