Have you seen our billboards? 

Untitled-2.pngOur PPW program received a grant for billboards across the community. Mr Brown, women from housing, & the media team designed the billboard and set up a pregnancy photoshoot with Chrelle Loonsfoot & one of her son’s. We wanted to spotlight women in recovery with their children and the ability to see that there is joy in recovery. What do you think of our billboards? 

 

Thankfulness

Zoom Crafting with FOH Prevention Team

21210718-5016-44D9-AF1D-ED392A608AED.pngOur Prevention Team has a monthly family crafting event and despite Covid-19 is thriving. Since June they’ve taken to Zoom to devote a time slot to families who register. From decorating a stepping stone to a letter, a back to school craft and carving a funkin this October, we are helping strengthen family bonds and start important family conversations about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

 

Yes! You Can Have it All in Recovery

We’ve got a few billboards going up soon and needed a powerful image for recovery that shows that pregnant and parenting women are a priority for treatment. Chrelle and one of her sons were happy to be our models for the billboard. Her youngest son insisted they had to “match” for the photo shoot. Aren’t they adorable?

Saginaw Odyssey House hosted Flint and Port Huron on September 28th, 29th, and 30th to hear the journey from madness to miracles. Following the awards presentation, the Odyssey Family enjoyed lunch from Famous Dave’s.
