Maureen is a mother who knows what the effects of having a child in addiction can do to the family. Since her daughter’s recovery, she has founded the group, Magnolia New Beginnings, that helps drug users and their families. You can read a short synopsis of her and her daughter’s story on the New York Times.
As a mother who has personal stake on the matter of substance use, Maureen Cavanagh is a great addition for advocacy with the Above the Noise Foundation. Maureen has run the non-profit “Magnolia New Beginnings” for some time now, and her experience working with non-profits will surely serve as an asset to our cause.
