Kaitlin Murphy Foundation Supports the Help and Hope Guide

Written on by Mindy Haas

Voice and Vision, Inc. is excited to announce we received a $2,500 grant from Kaitlin Murphy Foundation to be applied to the cost of producing, printing and distributing the second guide in our Help and Hope series: Help and Hope – From Families who have Walked the Walk – Substance Use: The Growing Need to Know.  (You can read more about our guide here).

Kaitlin Murphy Foundation lives up to its slogan: FIGHTING MAD and FIGHTING BACK Against Addiction.  They have done extensive work supporting various recovery and prevention efforts in the area.  Here are just a few:

  • Partnered with David’s New Day to provide toiletry bags for women transitioning from addiction treatment to residential recovery homes.
  • Provided shelter, food, and other emergency services for homeless in Bucks County.  
  • Awarded grant funding to Women’s Recovery Community Center, which provides housing for women in recovery. It also provides tools and teaches coping skills to help maintain recovery.  
  • Organized a community outreach to collect necessities, such as diapers, wipes, and clothing to families served by SOAR CORP, an outpatient substance abuse treatment center.

 For the past three years, Kaitlin Murphy Foundation has hosted a golf outing to raise funds for distribution to organizations aligned in the fight against substance use and addictions. This year it sold out quickly, but there are still dinner tickets available. 

Thank you, Kaitlin Murphy Foundation, for this grant and helping us to get information to the public that we believe will help spare a lot of heartache for families and help save people’s lives.  

We continue to raise funds for Help and Hope – From Families who have Walked the Walk – Substance Use: The Growing Need to Know.  Please note: you can make secure tax-deductible donations on our website.  Thank you for your consideration and help!

About Kathryn

Kathryn Lerro

Hi, I’m Kathryn Lerro, mother of two lovely daughters, wife of one fine man.

After 24 years of wandering (thanks to my husband’s Air Force career), we are back home on the East Coast. We currently live in Philadelphia where I enjoy writing, taking long walks, decorating my front window in South Philly tradition, talking to interesting people and eating great food.

As I’ve met people on my travels I’ve become keenly aware that most of us could use a healthy dose of encouragement. It is for this reason that I try to weave a message of hope into everything I write.

About Mindy

Mindy Haas

Hi, I am Melinda Haas, but you can call me Mindy.   A true introvert, I delight in solitude with a good book or a movie.  I like dabbling in nature photography while taking rigorous hikes.  I adore my husband who is a ton of fun.  He shares my wanderlust as well as my appetite for Indian and Thai food.  Very often, you’ll find us dancing to Cumbia in the kitchen while we make dinner.   We also love road tripping and exploring new places. (New England is our new favorite!)

Through my writing, I want to encourage and embolden others to push past the limits they place on themselves.  I want to help people see that they can accomplish more than they think they were capable of.
