Non-profit hosts dinner to benefit mothers recovering from addiction

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A local non-profit working to help mothers who are recovering from drug or alcohol addiction is hosting its annual "Harvest a Change" benefit dinner.

Amethyst Place provides mothers with a place to live as they recover from addiction. The moms have to show they are living sober, while either going to school or working a job.

If they graduate the program, they can keep all the furniture in their apartment when they leave.

Libby Carter, a resident at Amethyst Place, has been sober for 22 months. Without Amethyst Place, Carter believes she would be struggling.

"I was hopeless, and now I can be a mom, and I have a place to live. They're teaching me how to live, I didn't know how to live sober before," she said.

Christa Dubill will emcee the dinner.

The gala is Friday, October 11th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.  at Arrowhead Stadium in Tower Club East.
