Recovery Warrior Feature

Josh, Kids Escaping Drugs Renaissance Campus Patient

Josh has been a patient at Renaissance House for about 4 months now. His favorite part about being on the Kids Escaping Drugs Renaissance Campus are the friendly staff and clients. He enjoys participating in the Spirituality Group on campus and he likes to read in his free time. Josh is in the High School Program on campus and upon graduation, he will be attending Erie Community College in the fall to study accounting. When asked who has had the greatest impact on his recovery journey, Josh mentioned a few staff members: his primary counselor Felicia, Darrell and John, a couple of our treatment assistants, and Jenn, another counselor on the campus. He said he has connected with these individuals the most because they make him feel comfortable, and they are extremely supportive. Josh is on track to graduate from Renaissance House at the end of the month! Keep up the great work Josh. We are so proud of you!

Donor Spotlight

We want to send a HUGE thank you to Melissa from the Stuff the Sneakers Campaign for raising $2,250 from her cash bash raffle! Throughout the month of April, Melissa was collecting sock donations for Gerard Place, Harbor House Resource Center, Community Missions of Niagara Frontier, and Compass House. Last week, some of our residents helped put together gift boxes for each of these organizations! We would like to thank Melissa for her support of our mission to combat the disease of addiction. We look forward to our continued partnership!
