“We Need to Help Each Other”
Investor Spotlight: Marcia Hansen
Marcia was introduced to Recovery Beyond by a friend and colleague four years ago. She was asked to serve on the board and after witnessing the founder’s passion for the cause to prevent homelessness through combating substance use disorder (SUD) she accepted the invitation and began her initial investment in our organization by giving her time.
Marcia knows firsthand what SUD can do to a person – two years ago a dear family friend lost a long battle with substance use to an overdose. Through serving on the board, Marcia was able to utilize her talents of organizational development to further grow Recovery Beyond and expand the programs that it offered to those afflicted by SUD. After two years the organization began to flourish and demonstrate a remarkable success rate for the program’s participants: For two years in a row 85% of those who completed the program were still sober after one year and 100% of the participants who took a leadership role were still sober at the end of the 2nd year.
With success rates like these, Marcia believed that Recovery Beyond had discovered a formula to successfully manage Substance Use Disorder and she jumped all in to spread the word about Recovery Beyond by not only giving her time and talents but also her treasures. Look for these treasures at the silent auction at the upcoming Rise Up celebration at Marymoor Park’s Velodrome field on August 29th from 1-4pm.
Thank you, Marcia, for everything you do and give. It is an honor to have a partner like you aiding in our mission to prevent homelessness and loss of life through our battle against substance use disorder.
