Did you know? At least 11% or 8.3 million children in the U.S. live in a home with a parent in need of treatment for alcohol and/or drug dependency.
These children are at greater risk than their peers to suffer from problems such as depression and anxiety, physical health challenges and learning problems; three times more likely to be abused, four times more likely to be neglected, and face four times the risk of developing substance abuse issues.* Knowing that 95% of adult addicts start to use drugs before the age of 20, Camp Mariposa strives to intervene before a problem develops.
“I was shocked to learn that programs for children in this situation simply did not exist, and that’s when I knew The Moyer Foundation could help. Thanks to the leadership and guidance of our partners, and the support of our community, Camp Mariposa will continue to grow and expand like Camp Erin, giving more children hope and the opportunity to break the cycle of addiction for generations to come.”
– Karen Moyer, Chairman of The Moyer Foundation
