What They’re Saying

“When I started as a volunteer for Community in Crisis, my intention was to give of my time to help those affected by addiction. Little did I know that this organization was going to help me just as much; someone close to me struggles with this disease and it impacts not just the individual but the whole family, too. As Chair of Community Outreach, I witness firsthand how much support family members can get to help them deal with this disease. I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of Community in Crisis and am so appreciative of everything that they do. Thank you.”

Clodette

“Community In Crisis gives me the opportunity to give back to the community in which I grew up. I believe wholeheartedly in everything Community in Crisis stands for. Their mission is to educate the community on the dangers of prescription pills and heroin, increase prevention, help those in recovery, and give families the support they need. As a person in recovery, I am honored to be a part of CIC.”

Mike

“The Hub Club has been a hit with my two kids. They look forward to it each week. Just telling you because clearly, you are doing something right that I have two 13-year-olds that love going to your club every week … so thank you.”
