Help Herren Project Raise Funds For Our COVID-19 Emergency Recovery Relief Program
All of us are being impacted in some way by the #COVID-19 pandemic. Like addiction, it does not discriminate. The addiction community we serve has been negatively impacted through the loss of jobs and the closing of many support groups meetings putting the population we serve at great risk of relapse. Due to the loss of jobs and income we see many of our past and present clients at risk of losing the ability to pay rent to secure their structured living environment of sober housing. With the loss of recovery meetings, there is the loss of fellowship and support within their trusted recovery networks. These two things together create the perfect storm for those with addiction and threaten their long-term recovery and ultimately affect not only themselves, but their families.
All donations made will fund our COVID-19 Emergency Recovery Relief Program. All funds will be used for to help past and current clients negatively impacted by the pandemic with sober housing rent and providing additional support through free recovery coaching and nightly online recovery mettings in order to help those struggling sustain their sobriety. To contribute to your impact, GoFundMe Charity will also make a $1,000 match grant to qualified nonprofits that raise at least $1,000 on GoFundMe Charity.
Herren Project is calling on everyone to come together as a COMMUNITY to support each other, inspire each other and empower each other wherever you are! Any amount will make an impact! #givingtuesdaynow
