MCRC Awarded Grant from Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation
Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition has been awarded a $30,000 grant through the application process of the
Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation.
~~The Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation is a private non-profit organization that promotes strengthening and supporting communities and draws upon the values and spirituality of the founders. The Foundation has a special interest in organizations and people who have less recourse to usual channels of resources, focusing on community-based initiatives in the State of Maine only.~~
This investment will enable us to upgrade The Friends House to provide much needed repairs including the addition of a first-floor bathroom and extensive renovations to the parking area.
The Friends House, located in Rockland, is able to accommodate 10 men in recovery who need a safe, sober, and supportive place to live. The House already provides a healing environment in which the residents spend time together for support, while establishing employment and connections to other local resources in the community that assist their recoveries. Now, the Friends House will be an even safer and a more effective place for those committed to recovery from addiction.
“It is critical for people in early recovery to have a solid foundation to begin their recovery. Without providing safe, sober and supportive housing, most people cannot make progress in their recovery and continue to struggle with complications of their addiction. We are so thankful to the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation for helping us to provide a safe and home-like environment at the Friends House.” stated Iain Kirkham, House Supervisor of The Friends House.
We are very close to reaching our fundraising goals for 2021, if you would like to help, please click our donate tab, mail check to P.O. Box 1002, Camden, ME 04843, or email at email@example.com
