To Provide Resources to persons in recovery from substance abuse.

How We Help

The CPR mission concept was born in 2013 when two men in a transitional recovery house came up with an idea for a music/arts festival to raise funds to assist residents with needs such as emergency health and dental work, clothing, transport to job interviews, etc.

Several successful fundraisers later, the Community Program for Recovery (CPR) was formed as a non-profit organization. Our largest annual event, Serenity Jam, addresses the need for that extended support.

Funds raised go to a managed Emergency fund that recovering transitional house residents in good standing can borrow from. As we grow, we continually look for ways to assist those seeking a better life, and the gift of recovery.

Who We Help

In the past three years, CPR has raised $11,000 for emergency funds for recovering transitional house residents. The residents of the sponsored houses became integral participants in the fundraising event Serenity Jam, enjoying a sense of belonging to a sober, fun, and worthwhile cause.

“CPR’s donation helped make a big difference in the lives of our women and their families. The fund for assistance with work clothes and transportation was huge. CPR is making a difference in Our communities. Thank you.”

“We are grateful to have been a beneficiary of the 2019 Serenity Jam. We have created a fund that allows our residents in need to borrow from. So far we have had 2 guys fix their cars and both have paid back the money. Another patron is working on some much needed dental work. The value of what has been given our house can’t be calculated.”

“The women of S.T.A.R.S are blessed to have been chosen to be a part of Serenity Jam. The funds donated were put to good use right away, helping 2 new girls with start-up money to get into the house. Both girls got jobs soon after and are staying sober. Another girl got assistance for work shoes to start her new job. Thanks to CPR and Serenity Jam!”
