Petition Closed

Keep Recovery Alive in Claremont!

This petition had 387 supporters

Since July of 2016, HOPE for NH Recovery has operated a peer recovery center in Claremont, New Hampshire. Due to a lack funding, the center is slated to close its doors on March 3rd, 2018. 

The closure of this community resource will negatively impact the community of Claremont and Greater Sullivan County in many ways, but most directly, it means that the individuals and families who utilize this space every day will be left without any centralized peer recovery support. 

The center was supporting over 200 members and had received over 1700 visits since it opened less than 2 years ago. The center hosted 14 peer-based meetings, one on one recovery coaching services & skills-building, support with accessing housing & employment, volunteer hours, and educational opportunities. 

Without this resource, the men and women seeking support for their recovery are left with very limited options and absolutely no place within their own community that exists for the sole purpose of bringing the entire recovering community together to collaborate, communicate, and grow.

I support this endeavor because my own path in recovery began in a peer recovery community center. The concept works, and as I head into my 6th year of successful sobriety, I serve as living proof of that fact. A group of community care providers is currently working on developing a sustainable program model to keep this from happening again, but we need your help. Even if you are not able to contribute, please share this link with others. The individuals and families in Claremont who have relied on this resource for nearly 2 years need your support.

Your voice matters!
