The Pettengill House is pleased to announce its newest emergency assistance program, the Pelican Substance Abuse Treatment Fund. Spearheaded by Pettengill Advisory members Kim and Steve Keene, this program will provide low income men and women in the Greater Newburyport communities the opportunity for treatment in an approved 12 step residential recovery program. In order to be considered all candidates must be screened and assessed by Pettengill House professional staff and meet qualifying criteria. More information to follow. We would like to thank the community for welcoming, supporting and donating to this important program!
