Happy Valentine’s Day! May all of your relationships be strong today as you express your friendship, loyalty and love!
Reentry is about to GROW!! Those three grants we wrote in December with our coalition partners as a response to the Opioid Crisis in Alaska, we got them! One will fund a Recovery Residence, sober housing for people in treatment and leaving incarceration! The second grant is for Peer Support and we are in the process of hiring the Supervisor and in the next few weeks four Peer Support Specialists. The third grant is for Supported Employment and we will hire a Supervisor and two part-time Employment Specialists. The last two grants will be part of the Reentry Coalition and will staff a Reentry Center as well as going out into the community with peers that need assistance in the early days of reentry and navigating a sober lifestyle.
In support of all of our Reentry Coalition agencies we will be helping develop a Peer Support workforce starting with training in April. Now that we have the grant we have so much work to do so just stay tuned and connect with us on Facebook.
