OUR MISSION & VISION

Mission

Our mission at GRI is to build a philanthropic pool that supports organizations providing services to people in recovery from  a substance use disorder (SUD). Too much of the recovery community lacks financial and collaborative resources required for sustainability and growth. Obtaining funds and then deploying them strategically to the community, GRI brings together public, private, and pop culture to decrease stigma, grow awareness, and increase philanthropy.

Vision

We envision a world where all people in recovery from substance use disorders (SUD) have access to the services and support they need.

OUR WORK

Research

GRI works with leading substance use disorder experts to support research that identifies the most urgent needs in the recovery community and raise funds to address them.

Partnerships & Initiatives

GRI partners with public, private and pop culture leaders and organizations to help advance national and local recovery initiatives.

One of GRI’s primary initiatives, being launched in partnership with AmeriCorps, the Federal national service network, is to deploy 1,000 Recovery Corps members across the U.S. to deliver peer support services to people in early recovery.

The initiative, which has shown strong success in its pilot program, pairs full time staff with existing, local non-profit organizations to deliver 1:1 recovery coaching, housing assistance, job training, continuing education and other needs as those in early recovery navigate re-entry into their families, work and communities.

Our initial goal is to engage corporate, foundation and individual major donors to raise $15 million dollars to match the public support it will take to deploy the first 1000 Recovery Corps members.

Grants

GRI supports organizations providing evidence-based programs that have demonstrated success in lowering reuse rates, and supports projects and initiatives that reduce the stigma around substance use disorders and provide access to opportunities that further enrich the lives of those in recovery.

Education

We convene opinion leaders in science, health policy, business, the media and non-profit arenas to find and fund the best solutions for people in early recovery.
