Attendance at our Lancaster Open House yesterday exceeded our expectations - and represented such an amazing cross-section of people we connect with in various ways as an organization! Treatment professionals... community coalitions… past/present board members… a state Senator… vendors… county government… people in recovery … donors… and so many others who took the time to stop by.

It was a humbling afternoon and we were encouraged by the support that was extended to us from our community. Thank you!
