We're proud of our Valparaiso Police Department, partnering with others in the recovery community to sponsor the Recovery Art Series, which kicked off over the weekend. This is a series of recovery-centered art projects at locations throughout the community. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. To learn more, including where to participate each month, visit https://tinyurl.com/VPD-Recovery Recovery Connection, Porter County Substance Abuse Council Indiana Recovery Network
It was a pleasure to partner with Recovery Connection to kick off this Recovery Art Series, designed to promote awareness of substance dependency. Iโ€™m a firm believer that getting people the help they need right away greatly improves lives and also reduces the risk for substance-related crime. Kudos to Sam Burgett, the Valparaiso Police Department's social worker โ€“ Porter Countyโ€™s only PD social worker. As sheriff, Iโ€™ll put a priority on connecting people with resources like weโ€™re doing at the VPD.
The SMART Recovery meetinf for tomorrow, December 2nd will take place virtually only. Please visit www.recoveryconnectionpc.org under the calendar tab for meeting link. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us (219)510-6501.

What news or events do you think affect you and the community you live in? What's happening in your town or city that knocks on your front door and says it's going to impact your life today? Some say that we should only report good news and do away with the bad. Some media outlets do.

We take it one step further. We share the news from organizations and individuals that have an impact on their community by helping others and specifically those in need. Sometimes the news in that space is not all cheery cheery and happy happy, but the work that is done to help is.

What do you think? Do you know of an organization or individual that is doing something remarkable to help their community? Be it helping veterans in need, homeless, those who need transportation, those who are having difficulty obtaining food, who is the hero in you city or town?
