THE LENNY BRUCE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
The primary goal is to get people going. Some people need financial assistance. If an approved program is too expensive, The Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation scholarship program can cover many of the costs.
Under the direction of Kitty Bruce, the foundation stays involved with each person they help. The foundation seeks after care support, family care support and ongoing educational and emotional guidance for recipients of the scholarships.
In some there cases there are people caught in the penal system that are brought to the foundation for help. In such cases, The Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation can find the right plans to help these individuals, which may include at-home plans that are approved by the court.
Today Kitty Bruce is proud to have personally handled many success stories. Many of those she has helped with funding and educational tools through The Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation are still living productive, clean and sober lives today.
“Alcoholism and drug addiction never sleeps. I decided that the best way to honor my father’s memory is not with a star on the boulevard, not with a fancy plaque, but rather I created The Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation. I am passionate about helping people stay on the sober life path. We want to provide scholarships, education and encouragement for everyone who needs help at living a healthy, productive, clean and sober life. This is my contribution … create a system that truly saves lives.” – Kitty Bruce
The Lenny Bruce Module for Sober Living
“My dream is to have the Lenny Bruce Module used in treatment centers and sober living programs all over the world.” – Kitty Bruce
Kitty Bruce has developed many techniques and tools to help people avoid pitfalls or missteps on the path to living sober that potentially could send them backwards. Here are just five areas the Lenny Bruce Module for Recovery and Sober Living addresses:
We teach new ways to perform every day tasks without becoming overwhelmed.
We talk about the power of positive action. We help people in recovery learn how to incorporate exercise and strength of mind and body while building a spiritual foundation on a daily basis.
Sober Experiences for Fun
We teach people who struggle with negative behavior to turn that energy into fulfilling time that was once viewed as idle or boring.
Whether it’s serving the homeless or being helpful at a 12-step meeting, we urge giving back. This is one way we teach people to become comfortable inside their own skin.
We focus on communicative skills and body language to build better self-esteem. We help people understand this disease; where it is coming from and how to get rid of negative self-beliefs. We provide new ways to think with positive, non-self-judgment messages.
