Here Together - Supporting Families

Almost two years ago I started a support group for family and friends of those with loved ones suffering from Addiction, I was heartbroken and felt so alone. Not having anywhere to turn and not realizing so many were out there going through the same thing I was. The Isolation is unbearable and the embarrassment paramount. I have seen how this group has helped many families realize they are not alone and that their loved ones are important and they have supports that are so hard to find.   I need to continue this group and we need to have a place where we can all go to feel safe and unashamed and understood.  . I am nonprofit and not for profit so our meeting rooms have been paid out of my personal money and we have generously had a hotel donate a room during Covid but that may not last long and we have no where that will donate a meeting place for us for free. Therefore we are hoping to raise funds to get us a long term solution. Every little bit helps and our families will be forever grateful.
