The Pelican Intervention Fund 2023 Annual Appeal

Dear Friends of the Pelican Intervention Fund,

We are writing to express our gratitude for your past financial support. This year, we funded 30 people into 12 Step residential sober living programs. This brings our total to 140 clients that you’ve helped support since our founding in 2015.

Your donations allow us to continue our mission of supporting men and women struggling with addiction by funding them into residential 12 Step sober living programs.

As you may know, Federal, State, and private insurance companies only fund medically based treatment and won’t fund 12 Step faith-based programs. The crisis is getting worse. Last year in Massachusetts alone, there were 2,357 confirmed Opiate overdose deaths, an all-time high in the Commonwealth.

Mone’ Cassier, (Executive Director of Sober Sisters Recover,) highlights the impact your donations make and the transformative changes these opportunities provide to those working toward sobriety, their families, and our community.

In the spirit of the Thanksgiving Season, we thank you for your continued support.
