As you can imagine, the need for recovery homes and the support they bring those who suffer from addiction is more important now than ever. Many of our residents have been furloughed or have lost their jobs. By canceling the race, we are limiting our income for ongoing expenses; however, we are putting safety above all and even if the social distancing restrictions are lifted by June, we are not comfortable gathering a large group of people.
We are in the process of shifting gears with our events for this year and will be rolling out a new series of virtual speaker webinars, called GRACE Speaks.
An evening with Liz Murray, National Speaker and Author
NOTICE: We have decided to postpone the September GRACE Speaks event due to the uncertainty of covid and current travel restrictions. Our plan is to launch the Liz Murray GRACE Speaks event during the first quarter of 2021.
Liz Murray, national speaker and author of Breaking Night: A Memoir of Forgiveness, Survival and My Journey from Homeless to Harvard. This is a story of success despite being homeless and raised by drug-addicted parents.
