Cape Cod Recovery Home Scholarship Fund

Organized by: Nate Astronaut

THE STORY:

There was a period in my life where I wasn't sure if I would make it to 27. When I was ready for help people rallied to provide the support I desperately needed. On January 3rd I celebrate my 27th birthday. I cannot express the gratitude I have in my heart with words. Giving back to the people who helped me is the only gift I want.

The proceeds of this fundraiser will help sponsor people in recovery homes on Cape Cod. People who are finding a new way to live and struggling to make ends meet. A week's worth of rent is usually around $160 and the support they offer is invaluable. I owe my life to one of these homes and the people who run them are some of most compassionate and hard working I have ever met in my life.

  • 50% of your donation will help someone in Advanced Sober Living in Hyannis, a structured recovery home for men.
  • 50% of your donation will help someone in Powers Place in Falmouth, a recovery home for women and mothers.

*money raised will be given to the recovery homes, not individuals.

We do recover,
Nate Robertson

About me: 
Some people may feel uncomfortable donating money to someone they do not know. Let me tell you a little about myself. Since finding recovery I have been able to be apart of many amazing things in my community. My friend Sam Tarplin and I produced the documentary What Happened Here: The Untold Story of Addiction on Cape Cod. I was an advisor on HBO's documentary Heroin: Cape Cod, USA. I currently am the chairperson of the Recovering Youth Coalition, serve on the Barnstable Regional Substance Abuse Council, and work at the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod.
