Moms Living Clean Benefit

The filmmaker Sheila Ganz (Unlocking the Heart of Adoption) is having a mini-screening and benefit for her film-in-progress, Moms Living Clean, tomorrow night. This important film reveals a positive program that supports mothers and families in crisis in our community. Moms Living Clean profiles six women as they move through residential substance-abuse treatment and transitional phases of recovery. The mothers face challenges to stay clean, learn parenting skills, and become self-sufficient. Filmed on location in San Rafael, this is a model for whole family rehabilitation for mothers and their children as an alternative to incarceration and the breaking of family ties. These intimate portraits combat the social stigma that mothers on drugs are lost to society forever. The benefit of the documentary-in-progress will screen a clip from the film and have special guests- several mothers from the film.

Friday, August 18, 7 to 9pm
111 Minna Street, San Francisco
Admission is Free ~ Seating is Limited
Hors d’oeuvres and Cash Bar

Please RSVP to

Ganz began filming the women in April 2005 and will continue to the end of 2006. This fundraiser will help with camera and other equipment expenses, and editing the final film. If you would like to simply make a donation, click here.
