Amandas CRPA Certification Fund

The purpose of this GoFundMe is to cover the expenses for my CRPA Certification. I am seeking employment as a Recovery Coach or Peer in the addiction and mental health field. In order to become employed I need to complete my certification as a CRPA which is Certified Recovery Peer Advocate. My heart is to help other alcoholics and addicts and those struggling with mental illness. By supporting this fundraiser you are helping me accomplish my goals and I want to thank you in advance.

The following is a list of how the funds will be distributed:

Recovery Coach/Peer Advocate Basics -$525
Ethical Considerations For Recovery Coaches/Peer Advocates-$250
Medication Assisted Treatment/ Medication Supported Recovery (MAT/MSR)-$150
Self-Care of the Recovery Coach/Peer Advocate and the Recoveree-$125
Exam Fee-$75
Application Fee-$100
Total: $1225

On a personal level, my family was ravished by alcoholism and addiction and I too fell into a life of chemical dependency. Now, I have been living a faith centered life of recovery. It is my dream to go into this field to help other addicts.

The first course starts at the end of May. I thank you in advance for supporting this fundraiser to help me achieve my goal and be able to give back to my community.
