Three months ago, Jeremy Dawson was a guest at the Homeless Hospitality Center. Now, he has a new job and his own place in downtown New London, but he can often still be found at HHC, talking with guests and sharing his infectious sense of humor with everyone around him.
These days, however, Jeremy is there with a new role-- he serves as one of the city of New London's three recovery navigators, helping guests who are struggling with addiction to find appropriate treatment. The three navigators work through the Ledge Light Health district to combat the opioid crisis throughout the the New London area.
We could not be more proud of Jeremy-- whom you may recognize as one of the banner carriers from last month's Walk to End Homelessness. Jeremy was also featured in a recent article in the
New London Day
, with a profile of the work that he and the other recovery navigators are doing to help combat addiction in our community.
Congratulations Jeremy, and keep up the good work!
