About Meta House. Since 1963, Meta House has worked to end the generational cycle of addiction by healing women and strengthening families. While the cornerstone of our program is substance abuse treatment, we also offer case management, parenting, vocational and educational services to our clients and a host of comprehensive services for their children. This holistic, gender-specific and trauma-informed approach to treatment ensures that as a mother overcomes her addiction, the entire family has the tools to successfully adapt to a life in recovery.
About Food for Thought: Led by Nell Benton of the National Café and Thi Cao of Buckley’s Restaurant and Bar, is an initiative that unifies the local culinary community to share time, talent and treasure to benefit local charities.
