Yesterday, The Realistic Success Recovery Society received a cheque for $2,000 from the Communications Energy and Paperworkers (CEP) Union Humanity Fund.
The Realistic Success Recovery Society operates three supportive housing facilities, The Trilogy Houses of Hope.
The recovery program has assisted 190 men since 2007.
In that time 31 have one or more years of sobriety. Today, 52 men are clean and sober. By changing the life of one homeless or at-risk, person the organization saves society about $164,000 per year in health care and justice system costs.
The grant from the CEP Humanity Fund will assist the Society with opening a fourth facility to provide a home for another 10 men suffering from addictions.
