The Forever Young Foundation awarded over $60,000 in cash awards and even more in in-kind contributions to incredible local nonprofit organizations in the last two days.
The UNITE Rally yesterday was incredible. Even from thousands of miles away, streaming from my laptop, it was a spine-chilling experience. Without a doubt, yesterday’s event at the National Mall will not only make history, but that it will also change history for those struggling with addiction. Please watch this video. It will inspire and excite you and give you faith in a new future for how we treat addiction. We promise.

For the past three days, many members of the First Step House team have been attending the 2015 Fall Substance Abuse Conference in Saint George. It has been an excellent opportunity to gain new knowledge and attend workshops about the latest evidence behind addiction recovery, criminal justice issues, and prevention programs.
We would like to express our gratitude to the Sorenson Legacy Foundation for supporting our Long-term Recovery Program! We greatly appreciate our partnership and our ability to ensure that effective treatment services are accessible for those who are managing their chronic condition with minimal resources. Sorenson Legacy Foundation joins the Adobe foundation as a key contributor of funding for this essential program. And we are so grateful!
