We had a blast on the
evening of Tuesday, August 27th for our 2019 Summer “Raising Power”
Event. The event brought together executive team, members of THS board of
directors, leadership staff, new friends and ardent community supporters. Patricia
Edmond-Quinn, our CEO, took us through a timeline of how THS has grown to have
branches in key Puget Sound communities like Seattle, Bellevue, Everett, and
Kent. Patricia gave us a run-down on what her plans include and how important
it is to have a dedicated group of supporters who are willing to help us on the
frontlines of the Opioid Crisis.
Change is Good
The THS team lives by
the motto “Change is Good” and that’s exactly what our staff are doing. Each
day they are changing hundreds of lives, restoring health, and rebuilding
We shared the story of Royale Lexing, a client who was served in our Youth & Families program. Royale was tragically murdered in May of 2019, making his story bittersweet.
Brenda’s story was also shared at the Summer Raising Power Event. The way Brenda became addicted was akin to so many others in our community. Prescribed pain medication because of a sore tooth, it didn’t take long for her to develop a physical dependence. From there Brenda had to decide between spending her money on the street buying drugs or be horribly sick. Luckily she was connected to care and through treatment, at THS she was able to end her addiction to Opiates.
There are so many
stories of recovery we have yet to share. Please help us do that by continuing
to connect, sharing these stories, and giving so we can continue to foster
healing and recovery.
