RECOVERY PROGRAM SOLUTIONS OF VIRGINIA INC

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 8 people are interested

RPSV is in need of a volunteer to help us spread the word about an event we are hosting next month. The event will raise funds for our invaluable services that support individuals with Mental Health, Substance Use, and Homelessness issues in Northern Virginia.

We would like someone to further develop and maintain our website for long term, but have an immediate need to monitor our Grammy Night Fundraiser Event on Facebook and also to create and advertise on Twitter.

We need monitoring of email tied to account and of RSVPs and daily posts on both Facebook and Twitter to create interest in the event. You also need to provide enticing posts.

You may work from home at your own pace. We would love 25 hours or less over the next month. You can do less, so still apply as we may have a team mate for you!

Check out our website at www.rpsva.org to see the good work we do helping the mentally ill, those with substance abuse disorder and homelessness challenges.

Mission Statement

Recovery Program Solutions of Virginia brings new life and a fresh spark to community mental health recovery programs. At RPSV, we are who we serve.This is because Individuals who have recovered from their mental illnesses and substance abuse issues staff RPSV. We are peers from upper management to our valued volunteers. This unique aspect is what opens the door to growth and healing by those served by the organization. When individuals learn that those staffing the centers understand first-hand the challenges they are facing, they thrive in the inclusive, empathetic, nonjudgmental atmosphere.

Description

Recovery Program Solutions of Virginia has registration pending to be a 501-c-3 nonprofit corporation in Virginia.

Jerome Hughes and Lisa Goodwin founded Recovery Program Solutions of Virginia (RPSV) in 2011. The organization was created to meet the unmet needs of adults and seniors with mental health and substance abuse issues in Northern Virginia. RPSV currently serves residents in the Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax/Falls Church, Loudoun County, and Prince William County communities and is actively seeking to expand to other jurisdictions to help even more individuals in need.

RPSV’s programs maximize participant self-determination; promote access to treatment; and focus on decreasing dependence on psychiatric hospitalizations.

Since its inception, RPSV has helped thousands of adults and seniors receive transformative support to help them reach their full potential. The demographics of those RPSV serves includes adults, ages 18-59, and seniors, ages 60+. Two-thirds of RPSV’s clients are over age 50. Its oldest participant is 83.

RPSV meets those it serves "where they are" and provides them with a safe place to address the issues they are facing. It provides peer support and other key services to help individuals live independently.
