FOA rebuilds families and transforms lives through the 3 E’s; educate, empower and embrace. Through weekly meetings in various Ohio counties, navigation, one-on-one phone support and outreach opportunities, FOA is a sought after and respected resource in the Ohio Miami Valley and is now being sought after on a national level. FOA is unique because we provide support for the entire family and advocate for individuals to find their face and voice, which is key to eliminating the stigma associated with addiction.
The organization currently provides programming that includes weekly support meetings in four counties that welcome both loved ones and those seeking or in long-term recovery to come together for support, friendship and education. FOA has also made progress in eliminating the stigma of addiction by holding five successful rallies and encouraging members of the community to be the face and voice for those still suffering as well as those having success, family and recovery alike. FOA plans to continue growing and fighting for individuals and families affected by addiction.
In the first quarter of 2020, FOA will be MOVING to the Jergens Building located at 2122 Jergens Road, Dayton Ohio. We are furnishing 2 offices, a conference room, full kitchen, cafe/gathering area and large meeting room. We will be adding several new programs to better serve our community. The majority of our funding comes from individual and corporate donations. Please contact anitak@FOAfamilies.org if you are interested in donating to this project. EIN 47-13599732122
