Making a Positive Impact by Giving Back

Giving back to our community is a big part of the life at Real Recovery. Our staff are always looking for opportunities in which our program can support those in the surrounding community that are in need. We have found that these experiences have had very positive impacts on our clients (and us!) We can’t think of a better way to get “outside of ourselves” than by helping others and we have found that these activities are excellent tools that aid in supporting the recovery of the young men that we work with in our program.

The Habitat for Humanity Construction Project

A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to be a part of the construction process for a home that the amazing folks at Habitat for Humanity are currently building. We had a great turn out and our “crew” was able to get a lot of work done on a house that will soon become a family’s permanent home. Our boys loved having the opportunity to be a part of this experience, as many of them have never done anything like this before. It’s always amazing to see just how much can be accomplished in a short amount of time when a group of committed individuals work together as a team toward a common goal. Our guys were able to see firsthand how a small amount of their efforts could really make a big difference in other peoples’ lives. Each person that spent the day working with us took something away from that experience and we look forward to more opportunities to help those in our city that are in need.
