Foundation House is pleased to announce the addition of Shane Applegate to the team as our Business Development manager. Shane comes to Foundation House after more than 12 years of experience at Four Circles Recovery Center and Business Development work with Acadia Healthcare, serving the past 3 years as CEO of the program. His relationship with Foundation House over those years was very close, both professionally and on a personal level.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the team at Foundation House, serving in a role that helps young men find the personal message and lifestyle of recovery that is so important to a life of intent and self-worth,” says Applegate. “The philosophy of everything I have ever done matches perfectly with the Foxhole, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity.”
Shane has a proven track-record of excellence in experiential programming around the country, always committed to the personal benefits of individuals and families that engage the process. A graduate of Kansas State University in Public Relations, Shane has worked in several roles of programming and operations. His experience is going to allow him to not ‘market’ a program, but rather, to speak to the impact of Foundation House, and the long-term success of the young men that attend.
“Over the past twelve years, I personally know and have witnessed countless young men that have joined the Foxhole, and am blessed on a regular basis by long term updates on those young men now thriving in their personal lives. Recovery is more than possible. Foundation House has such a profound impact in showing the way, and it is an honor to support that mission.”
About Foundation House
Foundation House, founded in 2002, operates an extended-care program for young men in Portland and Bethel, Maine. It is built to meet a cross-section of behavioral health needs ranging from co-occurring and acute clinical care, to motivational and executive functioning issues. Our core belief is that growth occurs when young men find their way through experience. We teach our residents how to lead an addiction-free life - that means beginning and maintaining relationships, continuing their education by preparing them for the stresses of a rigorous curriculum, developing practical life skills, using technology responsibly, and learning how to have fun in sobriety.
