Our programs, services and partnerships open pathways for recovery by removing social barriers and creating opportunities for those seeking recovery.

Would you recommend Foundation for Recovery?

First, I do like their publication...however two times I attempted to volunteer with them and they were not interested in volunteers. I never even got far enough as having a conversation with anyone in their organization.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
