victims of addiction

THERE IS HOPE!
We do more than what you think.
Our goal is to help the recovering addict as well as their loved ones recover.
Why we do this.
In the course of recovering both emotionally and financially from the loss of his partner our founder saw so many others plagued by similar financial issues. Sometimes it ended up in grandparents living on penchants losing their homes, children unable to go to college because their parents ruined their credit before they were even of age, and more.
It became clear there was a need to help the victims as well, as there is currently little to no support for the addicts families and loved ones.
Where the money goes.
We are primarily a non profit organization, as such our funds go back to assist us meet our goals, and pay for programs Supporting the local Community, and assisting with recovery.
