Garrett Recovery has received a one-year, $125,000 grant from the Centers of Disease Control Division of Overdose Prevention (DOP) and the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), under the direction of the Franklin County Justice Policy and Programs (OJPP) to increase its services in the Hilltop community.
The grant allows us to increase the HOPE Resource Center’s hours of operation from four hours to 15 hours per week, allowing us to serve even more women in need.
The grant has also allowed us to hire four new staff members including a volunteer and donation coordinator, a peer recovery support specialist and two case managers who will create individualized care plans based on the unique needs of each woman.
As a result of the grant, we anticipate that the HOPE Resource Center will have the capacity to serve approximately 2,500 women, including transgender and children in the Hilltop area annually.
We need your help! Indirect costs like rent and utilities, food and supplies are not allowable under the grant. As we see the surge in clients needing to be served, our budget is being outpaced. Could you please consider supporting our cause. We commit, as we have since our beginning, to use 100% of your donation for these purposes.
We thank all of you for your support on our journey of love and hope, none of this would be possible without you!
