Neil Kennedy Clinic Gets Grant for Renovations

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Youngstown Foundation awarded a $25,000 grant to the Neil Kennedy Recovery Clinic for renovations to help the center “more effectively meet the growing demand for addiction treatment services in the Mahoning Valley,” said the clinic’s parent organization, Gateway Rehab, in a statement.

The renovations will be done at the clinic’s main location, 2151 Rush Blvd. The clinic also operates sites in Howland, Warren and Austintown. In June, Neil Kennedy broke ground on “supportive and sober housing” near the Rush Boulevard center.

“We’re grateful to have the support of The Youngstown Foundation,” said the clinic’s  executive director, Carolyn Givens. “With surging substance misuse here locally and across our state, this grant will allow us to update a heavily used facility so that we may continue providing high quality treatment services well into the future.”

In October, Neil Kennedy Recovery Clinic received a $25,000 grant from the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation’s Thomases Family Endowment. That money will also be used for renovations.
