Working with the UpDoNA Board of Directors, the Cares Committee is moving forward with fundraising support for an organization called STEP Denver.
STEP Denver believes in a four-pillar approach.
Stability When you enter the program, the number one goal is to take you out of the survival-mode frame of mind by giving you a safe, stable, and secure place to start your recovery.
Development Phase Two gives you the tools you need to stay sober in the real world. Recovery meetings and groups will explain the reasons you drink or use, and help you develop coping skills to overcome those triggers.
Transition Phase Three of our program helps you begin looking beyond Step. You’ll begin building outside support systems and resources and create a plan that will help you transition to a safe, sober living environment.
Community (Sober Living) Transitioning to one of our sober living homes is the final phase of Step’s program. These homes help you slowly re-enter the community with additional privileges while maintaining the structure and support of a peer recovery community.
If you are looking for a way to make a difference in the life of a man pulling himself up from addiction and/or homelessness, make a monetary donation or DONATE A CAR! https://stepdenver.org/ways-to-give/vehicle-donation/
