Heart Of Wilmington, or H.O.W., is a nonprofit dedicated to tackling substance abuse by utilizing resources and creating a platform for community members to get involved! We are seeking funding to create a website and app that will guide those in need of help to create a personalized profile. It will address barriers individuals face such as insurance, transportation, financial means, etc., as well as connecting them to resources for continued recovery such as 12-step meetings, purposeful employment, a strong recovery community and many other added features. Our website and app will connect individuals to sober events, inspirational videos and quotes, education to understanding addiction and recovery, and offer support (experience, strength, and hope) to those who have lost a loved one to addiction or love someone in active addiction. Our goals are to make finding treatment easier, assist in overcoming barriers, offer access to continuing resources, connect the community, provide education, remove the stigma of addiction, and unify resources and the community to create a united front against this epidemic.
