The impact of your gift
Many of our friends and families are experiencing social isolation and disconnectedness right now. Nearly half of adults report that the pandemic has affected their mental health, and 19 percent say it has had a “major impact.” In just half of 2020, Nevada has already surpassed the number of overdose deaths in all of 2019.
Foundation for Recovery (FFR) has experienced a surge in demand for services as Nevadans grapple with the ramifications of months of social distancing and the economic turndown. Since the outbreak began, FFR has been providing uninterrupted peer recovery support services, trending to exceed the number of people served by 40 percent compared to last year. To meet this growing need, we hope you will consider a special year-end gift to FFR to make a difference in the lives of people like Sharmayne.
“The Foundation has given me a safe place to spend any downtime during the months of social isolation,” Sharmayne said. “I feel useful volunteering and, quite often, I can be found either doing data entry, organizing a cabinet, or stuffing envelopes, wherever I am needed. I’ve met many amazing people who are dedicated to their recovery and are passionate about helping those of us who are recovering. I’m a better person today. I believe I’m more capable of achieving long-lasting recovery because I have the loving support and a recovery foundation that includes Foundation for Recovery.”
There are many people just like Sharmayne whose success are stories in the making. Many of them are holding on by a thread right now. With your support of FFR, you can be their lifeline. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, every gift of at least $25 will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $300,000. Please give between now and December 31, 2020, and help us unlock the full impact of this wonderful matching gift. We simply can’t do it without you. Our strength lies in the power of our tightly-knit community!
