Help a young man find recovery!

$2,599 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 64 people in 14 days
I have a family member who is struggling with addiction. He wants help. He is currently in the 24/7 Specialty Shelter (a.k.a. Detox Unit) at The Healing Place in Richmond, VA. This amazing, year-to-18-month long, spiritual program works. It saved my life and I have seen it transform the lives of countless men struggling with alcoholism and addiction. The program is free for men who are from Richmond and surrounding areas; however, it is fee-based for men who come from out of town seeking help. This young man is not from Richmond. The $2,500 fee will allow this young man to live and eat at the facility, receive effective treatment for his addiction, build a new life in Richmond, and hopefully a relationship with God. It is a small price to pay for an opportunity to build a new life in a guided, structured environment. This is truly a life-saving, life-changing endeavor. This young man is in his early 20s and has arrived at the last house on the block. Let's raise the money and show him that there is still hope!

Unbelievable! We did it! God is so good! This young man is so excited and overwhelmed with gratitude. You have all shown him, his family, and so many others that you have faith in his recovery and that gives him and so many others who are battling addiction hope. So many people have already been encouraged by all of your support - it's truly amazing!

As soon as the remaining balance is raised I will update all of you to explain exactly how the fee will be paid, how you will be notified, and how documentation will be provided. Thank you all again!

Thank you all so much! We are almost half way there! Our hopeful beneficiary has 4 days left in the Speciality Shelter/Social Detox Unit. Then, he will be on the streets in RVA until the full admission fee can be raised. Lets give this young man a chance!

This is an opportunity to help a specific person find real hope and get real help; a way to show a family that is hurting that they aren't alone; and a way to guide other addicts and alcoholics towards recovery.

Once our goal is reached, we will deliver a check for the total amount of funds raised, made out to The Healing Place, to the program Director on behalf of the young man seeking help. The whole thing will be documented, recorded and shared on this page and on Facebook with everyone who has shown support. We promise to be as public and transparent as possible without violating client confidentiality.
