Dear Friends,

I am so pleased to be this fiscal year’s Friends of the Council chair. The Friends of the Council Giving  Society has been a wonderful and effective way for you, and North Texans like you, to make sure  accessible and affordable addiction and mental health services are available to vulnerable members of  our community.

These accessible and affordable services become even more important as the trauma of the  ongoing coronavirus pandemic, opioid epidemic, and Afghanistan draw-down increases the number of North Texans needing treatment. Our goal this year is to have 100 active members. In turn, I am looking forward to the opportunities we will provide this year for Friends of the Council members and  prospective members to mingle, network, and learn more about Recovery Resource Council.

Because of you, Recovery Resource Council is celebrating 75 years of service and with your continued support, we can provide another 75 years.

Sincerely,
Jason Moore, Chair
