POWER Promises 2021

Power Promises

Every year, we look forward to POWER Promises to celebrate the power of recovery. This year, to keep everyone safe and ensure every dollar possible is used for this life-saving work, we’ll be coming together online.

Hosting this event online also gives us an opportunity to share a closer look at the people and programs of POWER. You’ll be the first to see inside a brand-new treatment facility and hear from frontline workers how they adapted during the pandemic.

You’ll also meet Kim and Nalee, two POWER alum who will share their personal recovery stories.

POWER Promises supports POWER’s mission to help women reclaim their lives from addiction and related emotional health issues.
