Please support our Petition (link above) to bring awareness to the lack of racial diversity as well as other minority groups in the field of Recovery. Many like myself have experienced racism, homophobic hate speech, and more accepted as casual conversation within organizations and institutions designed for our Recovery. Our previous years of our Charity Organization here at the Hollywood and Vine Recovery Center being self-supporting through our own contributions have ceased due to COVID-19 and the restaurant and service industry being our main support. Our members have suffered and a few of us have forgone paying our rent to purchase literature, office supplies, and more for members seeking Recovery.
There is an abundance of government funding available to support our Organization but the amount of money involved in submitting Grant Applications and additional processes is an example of the cyclical process that excludes certain economic, racial, and other demographics from thriving within their communities. Please support our efforts to help more than those who can support through their own contributions.
Gratefully – HVRC
