Nexus Recovery Center
Recovery Starts Here!
A Dallas nonprofit at the forefront of specialized substance abuse services for females, Nexus offers programs for adult women and adolescent girls ages 13 to 17, including those pregnant or accompanied by children. Nexus is one of only a few programs nationally that invites women to bring their children into treatment.
Transitional Housing: More Than Just Shelter
|Nexus works with HUD, the Metro Dallas Housing Alliance and the Dallas County Housing Authority to provide several types of supported housing as part of its continuum of care. Lawanda, Katie, and Lisa have become close friends through living in Nexus’ transitional housing. Lisa says that "the smartest thing Nexus has done for those of us who have gone through treatment is to put us in a housing program together because you’re around people who are going through what you are going through, who have children like you do, and who are trying to do the next right thing for the next right reason."|

Christmas Comes Early for the Nexus Adolescent GirlsOn November 3 Tory Beneke, from Michael Kors, facilitated an art project with our adolescent girls decorating tree ornaments. Tory loved working with the girls and was impressed by their talent: “You have some very special and very artistic young ladies in your program!”
Then the girls received a wonderful surprise from Tory as she presented each with a gift box containing a beautiful silver Michael Kors bracelet. There was lots of love at Nexus!
The girls’ lovely, hand-painted ornaments will be available for purchase at the Holiday Bazaar this Tuesday, November 12. See above for information about the Bazaar. And click here to see more photos of Tory Beneke and the girls.
