Over 30 Million people across the United States struggle with substance abuse and as a result millions more are touched each year by the addiction of a loved one. The Herren Project provides scholarships to high risk populations who have been affected by addiction or may have a loved one struggling with addiction. The goal is to provide positive basketball training with an emphasis on building self esteem and bringing their hoop dreams to the next level.
To apply for a scholarship to the Hoop Dreams with Chris Herren summer camps and clinics, please complete the application below. Please note, each application will be confidential and a limited number of scholarships will be granted to each Hoop Dreams with Chris Herren camp or clinic.
To be considered as a recipient of a scholarship, the player must be within the ages of 10-17 years of age and currently enrolled in a middle or high school. The scholarship is to attend one week of an established Summer camp or clinic run by Chris Herren and his team. The scholarship does not include housing, transportation and all campers must have a parent or guardian on site or within a 30 minute commute. If your player does not meet these guidelines, we unfortunately will be unable to consider the application.
With over 23.5 million people needing treatment for an addiction, there is an ever increasing lack of treatment resources available for those seeking recovery. From bed availability to what insurance will not cover, adequate length of stay and support is not readily available. In an effort to positively support those taking the steps towards recovery, The Herren Project offers recovery housing scholarships which include recovery coaching services. The goal is to provide those completing treatment the chance to get back on their feet, and transition into their new sober life in a safe and successful way. This affords the individual additional weeks in a more structured environment that they would otherwise have not had. Since its inception in December of 2015, we have seen this program have a significant impact on long term sobriety and success.
To be considered, a person must be an active THP client that has been placed into treatment by the THP treatment team. The recipient must show motivation towards their recovery and allow THP to actively participate in their aftercare planning. All applications are submitted through his or her case manager while in treatment. The scholarship is a 7-week sliding scale and includes payment of weekly rent only. In addition, all THP scholarship recipients are awarded a certified THP recovery coach for the duration of the scholarship. All applications are reviewed by the treatment team on a weekly basis with a maximum award of 5/month. For additional information regarding this program please e-mail email@example.com.
