Today we celebrated the 15th Year Recovery Anniversary of our Founder and Executive Director Mr. Kelvin Manurs. It was once again done in innovative and unconventional form, as he elected to share at our Artistic Expression Focus Group (a smaller but in-person setting). His anniversary sharing not only was about his drug and alcohol journey, but his lived experience with mental health challenges which have influenced his embrace of the Peer Recovery Model. Congratulations Kelvin! We are Arm & Arm!

General information

The Arm & Arm initiative is able to reduce recidivism, increase successful integration back into society, reduce crime and reduce costs in both dollars and lives wasted. Arm & Arm will expand its successes into an even wider community over time. Just as it “takes a village to raise a child”, it takes an entire community to successfully assist in recovery and transition. Arm & Arm unites the community in this effort.
