Voices of Hope is a local non-profit and a recovery community organization. We promote life-long recovery from the chronic disease of addiction through recovery support services, advocacy, research and education. We envision a recovery ready community: a community that is informed, stigma-free, and ready to support people in long-term recovery from addiction. We have several key services, including overdose response training, telephone recovery support, and a scholarship for people in long-term recovery. We also host an annual observation of Overdose Awareness Day, and last year, 650 people attended the event. This year, our observation of Overdose Awareness Day will be Aug 25th at 10 AM at Jacobson Park Shelter #6. The state harm reduction mobile pharmacy and pharmacists will be conducting training on overdose response as well as distributing naloxone. AVOL will be providing free HIV and Hep C testing and counseling. We will have a resource fair, as well as inspirational speakers, and a memorial to those we have lost to overdose.
