Our first movie night was held on September 17th at Mary, Queen of Peace Church in Sammamish, Washington. This event kicks off our fundraising cycle for the next program year which begins in October.
We had the opportunity to tell the Climbing Out of Homelessness story to people who were very interested in helping those struggling with permanent housing and the reasons for it. Addictions of all types drag people down. Addiction destroys self-esteem, relationships and families, and causes a host of physical, emotional and mental problems. The Climbing Out of Homelessness program offered by Recovery Beyond Paradigm offers a holistic approach to the needs of each individual. This approach addresses the priorities in the next stage of treatment and recovery. Working with our partner missions, we can accomplish more in the year or two when we join together in working with clients.
Our volunteers and mentors walk the journey with our clients as friends and a source of wisdom, experience and support. These relationships are a very significant part of achieving long lasting results. We can’t thank our volunteers enough for the love and care they provide.
While we are still developing a full set of metrics to track progress and overall success, we know that Climbing Out of Homelessness program works because our clients are the proof. Not only do they complete their treatment program, but many come back joining next year’s program as a volunteer and mentor; supporting others through the perilous journey to sobriety. This Community of Compassion is what you join when you support us with your ongoing gift of time, treasure or equipment.
Some of the program participants attended this event; sharing their story and the impact the program had in their lives. We hope that this message of hope shared through personal stories in the film will foster increased giving offering grow the programs Recovery Beyond Paradigm sponsors.
