THE STORY:

We are dealing with extreme heroin addicts in Lancaster County PA. This addiction has no social boundaries. Educated people, poor people, middle class people and wealthy people are all affected by this addiction. If you are reading this I am sure that you know somebody that is in this situation. One of the most important things after rehab is for these people to get into temporary housing for at least 90 days so that they can re-establish their relationships with their family and friends without the temptation of failing all of the rehab work that they had done. There is a shortage of temporary housing for the addicts. I personally have three nephews in Lancaster County that are heroin addicts. They are great young men and hard workers. As soon as they take one hit of heroin they're stuck in that ugly rut again. What I have learned from them is that there is a lack temporary housing for addicts. Their families and friends have already tried to help them through the system but have exhausted the trust of their family and friends. Because of the lack of housing, they end up having to stay in the shelter until a bed opens up. This can take up to two to three months until that happens. During that time they have lost the opportunity to move forward. I would like to open multiple temporary housing places in Lancaster County to aid in the success for friends and Neighbors. This cause is a positive step for addicts strength and independence. Any amount that you can contribute is appreciated. My goal is to have a place opened by Christmas. Thank you for your generosity.
