The first graduate with whom the CBF worked with received:
1. Intervention that led to placement in 6 weeks of alcoholic rehab.
2. During rehab, the Board did an evaluation of the individual's financial, emotional and living needs.
3. Post rehab, the CBF paid for legal counsel, psychiatric evaluation, provided temporary work and financial support by paying directly for expenses. No funds were paid directly to this person.
4. The Board met weekly with this grad for about 12 weeks to review his progress, provide emotional support and recommendations.
After 3 months, he "graduated" from the support of the CBF and had full time work, a financial plan to address debt and was working with legal counsel to address other issues.
