According to the MOOCC, there were 561 opioid-related and 660 non-opioid-related deaths in the first quarter of 2020. That is 1,221 substance-abuse-related deaths in only the first three months of 2020. Substance abuse is a state-wide issue that has sadly taken many lives, and we want to keep it from taking more.
In 2015, Brooke Simmers asked her dad to build or buy a home for her to operate and help others overcome addiction, avoiding what she went through. Regretfully, Brooke lost her battle that same year. Her dad, keeping his promise, founded Brooke’s House in 2019.
Brooke’s House’s mission is to inspire and empower women suffering from substance use disorders by providing them a safe, stable, and emotionally supportive living environment while in the early stages of recovery. By providing a home, counseling services, and social enterprises, this incredible organization has been able to help multiple women get a second chance.
The organization’s story and mission have deeply inspired our team here at Karlen & Associates Insurance Services. So, we are now advocating and directing monetary rewards to this very cause. We hope to give a second chance to as many women as we can, and you can help! When you recommend someone to us for a quote, we offer to donate $20 on your behalf! So, how many names can you give us?
