The Twin Cities Recovery Project is asking for donations to support our South MPLS community in the wake of the murder of George Floyd. His murder showed the world the inequities we have been working to address in the Twin Cities. Our focus has been on recovery from substance use disorder, but our work has always been about addressing the grief and trauma experienced by our community. Our folks were already hit hard by the pandemic, and many of them are going to need support for the foreseeable future. There are no stores open due to the unrest in the area, and most of the people we serve were already living in food deserts. With our current staff, we believe that we can successfully connect those most at-risk for food insecurity, side-effects of MH issues and trauma, and those at risk for overdose with the services they need. We have already started with direct support: food, diapers and formula, and continued naloxone distribution, and will transition to scaling up our grief and trauma services as we are able. We need funding to help address the immediate needs of a suffering and traumatized community. We have a $1,000 match from a generous donor to get us kicked off. Please consider supporting us.
