On January 25, 2019 Helping Other People Exceed (H.O.P.E.) thru Navigation (HOPEtN) will Present the 2nd Annual “Trailblazers of H.O.P.E.” Tribute!
We will honor the trailblazing and tenacious spirit of some of the Unsung Heroes who were instrumental in establishing, implementing, and preserving Drug Treatment Court, created inclusive and equitable programs and spaces for a demographic that has historically been marginalized, forgotten, and counted out.
Additionally, this year we will "Officially" launch Helping Other People Exceed (H.O.P.E.) thru Navigation's Tiny Houses of H.O.P.E. Pilot (THoHP) Project! 6 AFFORDABLE, PERMANENT, and SUPPORTIVE Tiny houses for individuals with a criminal background and or Substance Use Disorder history.
This Tribute is for the Trailblazers who stood up when everyone else was sitting down. We HOPE that you will mark your calendars and STAND with us as we recognize and give honor to the EXTRAORDINARY contributions of Ordinary people, who believed in Second Chances, had Compassion for Addicts, and the HOPE that Changes Everything.
