Here's a great example of how your support is changing lives each and every day. This story is shared by Tony Roberts, volunteer teacher and recipient of the "2015 Volunteer of the Year" award:
"We started the class of teenage boys with the question "How important is a support group in your recovery?" Many great answers from the boys. One boy, who sat off to the side and did not participate in the yoga, told us he was going home tomorrow and that his family would be his support group, but then he added, "I hope." It hurt to hear him express his concern...but all the boys in class spoke up, telling him they all supported him and encouraged him. Then my teaching partner, Harry Dudley, volunteer teacher and Board Member, led a nice Warrior series ending with a wonderful meditation, with an intention around "sobriety".
