My Personal Fundraising Page
Every morning, as I walk through the door at PEER Services, I meet people who are working through the challenges of recovery -- every day, one day at a time. Whether young or old, they are all working out new ways to manage life's challenges and join the world again. Their courage and tenacity inspire me!
I come from long lines of people on both sides of my family who struggle with addiction. I know this disease of isolation and despair from up close, and I know the toll it takes on people who are struggling and people who love them. These experiences inform my work every day, and help me keep focused on making PEER a strong engine of recovery for in our communities.
In the past few years, we've worked through the challenges of major cuts in state funding, a few terrible years without a state budget at all, and we've made the transition into new payers supported through the Affordable Care Act. We are working to rebuild our reserve and strengthen the organization so we can remain a vital healing resource.
I hope you will choose to join our team -- as a climber, a supporter, a donor. We look forward to seeing you on October 6th!
