Exciting New Opportunities to Help Families

We are working together to build a network of friends, supporters and champions to help bring hope and healing to families struggling with their son or daughter’s substance use. Starting this fall, you can become a “Partner for Hope” and raise both awareness and critical funds for families who need support and guidance. By sharing a memorial, story of recovery or creating a fundraiser, you can join us in delivering resources in a way that no other organization can.

“Every dollar you help raise on behalf of the Partnership will ensure that our free resources, like our national network of parent coaches, Master’s level counselors on our helpline, free online tools and community education programs can get to those who need them most,” said Kaila Packett Sassano, Vice President of Development for Partnership.

Different Ways to Get Involved

Host a Grassroots fundraiser. We are calling upon you – the writer, runner, cyclist, advocate, host or social media guru – to help inspire hope to parents and families. Friends, families and supporters of our mission can create their own unique fundraiser, or other events, to raise critical funds to help the families we serve.

Share your story. Stories unite those touched by addiction – and offer hope and inspiration to others. At Stories of Hope, you can courageously share your own or your family’s story of healing. This is also a space for you to celebrate recovery and pay encouragement forward by fundraising, as you reach recovery milestones. By working with us to unite those who have been impacted by addiction, you can give them hope and let them know that there are pathways to recovery.

Create a memorial page. Memorials are a special way to commemorate a loved one by creating a personal memorial in their honor. This is a place for you to share their life story, offer a space for your community to post memories, upload photos and make tribute gifts in lieu of flowers. You can also encourage others through your own fundraising efforts to honor your loved one’s life. By doing so, you can help raise awareness about substance use disorders and help other families know where they can turn to for help.
