A Brief History
In 2005 a core group of individuals in long-term recovery from substance-abuse identified three major areas of need in Fairfield, California; later realizing this need exists Statewide.
The three areas are as follows:
The third we found was the largest because the support and guidance is left up to the families or the streets they are returned to; this has failed miserably.
With the support of other members in recovery, we would be there to provide a facility exclusively for recovery and personal growth purposes that could be offered to any individual, family, or recovery organization.
We provide a safe place for support group meetings, educational classes, activities, and events at minimum rates.
We formed a seven member founders/initial board of directors in January of 2005, filed Articles of Incorporation as a California Charitable Corporation, and tax exemption application to the IRS.
We became a California Corporation on March 21, 2005, and on July 29, 2005 we received our pre-determination letter as a tax exempt organization under section 501 C 3, public charity organization.
We now have a facility used for the purposes above, a nine-member board of directors, executive director, and staff; all volunteers at this point.
