As 2021 draws to a close, we at the Megan House Foundation can once again look back at another year of satisfying accomplishments.
The Megan House Foundation is about to celebrate the graduation of the 100th resident from our program. This monumental milestone is in addition to the celebrations we enjoy on a regular basis; sobriety milestones attained, educational degrees earned, careers created, family relationships mended, and the overall rebuilding of lives once in ruins due to addiction.
But don’t take our word for it. We invite you to watch this video and hear the words of our graduates themselves. Some are spoken in recordings, others are written on squares that are posted throughout Megan’s House for all who follow in their footsteps to draw inspiration from.
Success stories like these are only possible through the continued support you provide. As we prepare to turn the calendar, we realize the challenges ahead will only continue to grow, and we must continue to rely on your generosity.
Nationally, the COVID pandemic has only made the addiction crisis worse. The most recent CDC statistics reveal overdose deaths have skyrocketed by over 30%, to more than 100,000 in the year leading up to this past April. Projections indicate that when the data is calculated for all of 2021, the numbers will be far worse.
Despite the national trend, we are making a difference here in our local community through Megan’s House and Erin’s House. Our residents are truly grateful for the love and support that you have shown and understand that without you their recovery and success may not be possible.
