This program includes evidenced-based services aimed at improving the quality of life and the provision of life skills for the residents. Massachusetts Lt. Governor Karyn Polito had a chance to visit Megan's House and spoke with the residents and said, "Megan's House is unique. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts needs to figure out how to create more homes like Megan's House to help individuals with long-term recovery."
"My goal was to develop the lots next door to Megan's House and sell them to help fund our treatment programs," said Grover. "We are excited to give our many supporters in the community the opportunity to participate in this raffle and win this beautiful new house, while also making a difference in the lives of these young women."
