Donor Spotlight!

We are so grateful for our partnership with Jordan Poyer! This month, our adolescents on the Kids Escaping Drugs Renaissance Campus received $10,000 worth of eye exams compliments of Peter Maeve Boutique Optical and Jordan Poyer. They also enjoyed pizza, autographed t-shirts, and chatting with Jordan! We can’t thank them enough for their generosity!

Recovery Warrior!

Ronny, Renaissance Campus Graduate

“My name is Ronny and I graduated from Renaissance House in 2018. My favorite part about being on the Kids Escaping Drugs Renaissance Campus was how interactive the staff was during my recovery process. From the time I walked in the door to the time I walked out, the staff was 100% committed to helping me along my journey to recovery. I enjoyed having one on one sessions with my counselor and all the fun activities especially attending Buffalo Bandits and Sabres games. I was also involved in the Face2Face Program and to this day, I still have an active role in sharing my story with adolescents at local schools. I currently work for AAA and have an apartment where I live with my girlfriend, Lydia and my dog, Cleo! If anyone was considering coming to the campus for treatment, I would tell them to do it! I have nothing but love for the campus and all the staff there. Do whatever you need to do to get the help and education you need. It could save your life.” -Ronny, Kids Escaping Drugs Renaissance Campus Alumni

Face2Face Facts, Know the Truth!

For this week’s Face2Face Facts: Know the Truth, we explore the reality of what many vapers are truly breathing in. We continue to observe many adolescents battle nicotine addiction through vaping. Admittedly, many of the teens we meet with disclose that they are unfamiliar with what is actually in their vaping products.
