Substance use and addiction are major issues that our community continues to face. In the past several years, K21 has provided funding for a number of initiatives and programs that are working to address the problem. This funding has included the launch of recovery facilities for both men and women, helping establish a local drug court, a recovery coach program, and an opioid treatment program.

Most recently, K21’s Board of Directors approved requests from local recovery facilities that will help them to renovate and expand their existing facilities to better serve the residents who live there. A grant to Serenity House will allow the organization to remodel all three Warsaw facilities, including kitchens, bathrooms, windows, and exterior repairs.

For the Rose Garden Recovery Community, a grant will help them expand the current capacity for residents, but will also allow them to provide housing for children of eligible residents. When a resident has achieved a certain level in her recovery, she might become eligible to have her children reside with her in a safe, supportive environment while she continues her path to long-term sobriety.

Both of these grants were approved as 3-1 super matches, which means that for every $1 raised by the organization for these renovations, K21 will put in $3. So a donation of $100 to either organization will turn into $400. To learn more about Serenity House or Rose Garden Recovery Community, or to make a donation, please click on the links.
