LivingProof Recovery Hosts Volunteer Open House
From the Rome News-Tribune, April 15, 2019:
The nonprofit Living Proof Recovery Center serves more than 1,100 people a month – and about 200 are under the age of 12.
That includes children of addicts in recovery and teens who may be seeking recovery themselves. Administrators said Monday they have just 40 volunteers to assist in the seven-days-a-week operation.
“We are three years into our program and as we have grown by leaps and bounds, so have our needs,” said Tracy Harrison, LPRC development coordinator.
That’s why they’re hosting a volunteer open house on May 1, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the converted home at 408 Shorter Ave. Harrison said attendees will get an overview of what it would be like to help out.
Living Proof, funded through government grants and community support, is one of the few Recovery Community Organizations in the state of Georgia. Its free programs run the gamut from recovery and family support meetings, employment services and tutoring to legal help, health and wellness, childcare, training and recreation.
“It’s an entire community of support,” said program manager Amy Young.
