  • 2020 Funded Projects

     #CaseysKids is a youth led prevention program that helps build leadership skills in teens and reinforces the decision to be drug-free. Youth led prevention allows teens to gain skills in leadership, public speaking, planning and implementation while at the same time promoting a prevention message that is more readily received by their peers. Circle of Strength funds provide high school student leaders with tools and information regarding high risk behaviors, as well as engage them in designing and delivering programming for their peers that uses this knowledge to shape behavior change. Opportunities to volunteer with the youth leaders in and out of the classroom provide a valuable experience for both the Circle member and students. 
    In 2015, the Circle of Strength committed to fund the remodel of the Monarch House, a women's recovery house owned and operated by Recovery Resources. The following year the Circle members chose to finish the remodel by designating their funds to refurbish the kitchen. The house serves as a bridge between supervised in-patient treatment and full return to community living, while offering a safe and sober environment for nine women where basic needs for food, clothing and safety are met, freeing residents to focus solely on their recovery. The house is supervised by two qualified recovery coaches who encourage and support the residents in their journey towards long term sobriety. The goal is to provide women with the tools they need for a lifetime of freedom from the disease of alcoholism and chemical dependency.
