FACES & VOICES OF RECOVERY - ANOTHER RESOURCE

The H.O.P.E. group generally doesn't endorse other organizations, but we do like to make you aware of other resources out there.  The Faces & Voices of Recovery organization's Website has lots of options for engagement (Blogs, Webcasts, etc.), and is just one of many such organizations working on the disease of addiction.  Our Other Resources tab above, lists many additional  resources you may want to check out.


"START HERE" RESOURCE DIRECTORIES

These directories are for the Metropolitan St. Louis area.  They are produced by Inside Dharma,
a Buddhist outreach organization that works with individuals both inside and outside of the
state correctional institutions, and provide services to homeless persons in the St. Louis area. 
Copies of the booklet should be available at our meeting site, but the information can also
be found and even printed off of their website http://www.startherestl.org/.  Please check it out! 
It contains lots of good and helpful information! http://www.startherestl.org/
