How We Help
The Shevlin Family Foundation is deeply commited to helping individuals and communities affected by substance use disorder (SUD). Here are a few ways we strive to remove obstacles for those we serve in early recovery.
Ideal candidates are Delaware County residents active in their (current) inpatient treatment program, who demonstrate a willingness to work a consistent recovery program after discharge and have a financial need.
First Help Grants
Our First Helps program aims to solve basic needs for those in early recovery primarily: food items, food cards, Septa cards, clothing and hygiene items.
This free program provides ongoing recovery support and encouragement.
Addiction is a ‘Family’ Disease
In October 2015, Peggie and Paul Shevlin set up a public charity to assist individuals seeking recovery. With 3 of their 7 children in recovery – they knew personally the effects of substance use disorder.
Grateful for their own children’s recovery, they felt called to specifically serve needy persons transitioning from treatment. Promoting hope for this particularly vulnerable population was their goal.
