Promise Resource Network is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the approach to recovery from mental illness, substance use, and trauma, by focusing on wellness, not illness. Your donation will help us live our mission every day through individualized recovery support, education programs and advocacy, allowing us to change lives and change the way society approaches recovery.
This retreat is a great opportunity for people to get together and work on developing national peer respite standards and a vehicle (peer respite association) to give them credibility and strengthen our collective voice as the people doing the work. It will be one of the first ever opportunities for people deeply invested in and involved with peer respites to gather, network, and develop the materials and relationships we need to keep moving peer respite forward while protecting fidelity to the model.
Sparked by recent incidences of funders who are trying to make these decisions for us, it is essential we find a way to work together to be recognized as the national leaders we already are!
This retreat is planned, led, and made possible by a group of national leaders and not one organization, state or region.
