Who am I helping?
We’re so glad you asked! The goal of these events is to raise funds for FOCAS’s efforts in preventing youth addiction.
Youth addiction is prevalent in our community and has a costly effect on the lives it touches. It often attacks generation after generation. It’s a cycle that’s tough to break, but it can be broken. Just look at our friend Allison.
Allison grew up with an addicted mother and found herself addicted to heroin at a young age. She soon turned to prostitution to supply drugs for herself and her mom.
Her life was full of broken dreams and constant terror. Wrapping her mind around the possibility of something different than what she was experiencing was extremely difficult. Those who came to know her at FOCAS’ Family Activity Center in Price Hill, however, didn’t give up on her.
About three years ago Allison came to us ready for detox. She had hope that things could change, and she took the first step.
Allison has been clean for three years. The last three years have been extremely challenging but the hope she holds on to has imparted courage to move toward the promises of God.
If only we could have met her in her youth, maybe her path could have changed earlier. Think of all the young “Allisons” we can reach with your help through #20for20n20.
So, what are you waiting for? Register for #20for20n20 now and put youth addiction prevention and recovery into motion for your community today!
