Today I got the news I have been waiting for for months. BCR has been granted nonprofit status. this means we can start applying for grants and funding to secure funds. This will allow us to start providing funds for members and their families. Some of the services we plan to offer:
- funds to attend rehab or detox
- a limited number of counseling/therapy sessions
- bus passes for those we don't drive
- recovery coaching sessions
And many others.
If you or anyone you know want to help our cause via monetary donations, volunteer work, or supplies pleas reach out. Anything and everything helps.
Today we also started working with a local restaurant to plan a Mocktail Dinner. A delightful dinner with a mocktail paired with every course. We want to start a culture that allows people to go out, enjoy a dinner, and drinks that aren't soda, soda water, or water.
Stay tuned for more information!
