Peer Mentoring Program

Like diabetes and asthma, addiction is a chronic disease. Until recently, however, most treatment has been based on a short-term acute care model through which individuals receive 30 to 90 days of treatment and are then returned to the community with the expectation that they automatically have the skills and resources needed to rebuild their life, succeed, and maintain their sobriety.

Recovery is Real....and Begins at Mariners Inn - Help Us Continue Our Mission

We are conducting a campaign to solicit donations for general operations and our Recovery Community Support network.

Our goal is to raise $150,000 for general operating support


--General Operating Support

Fundraising Thermometer

General operating support provides unrestricted funding to help support and maintain Mariners Inn as we pursue our mission. These types of funds are flexible and give us the ability to use the funds where they are most appropriate.

General operating funds allow us to focus on running and improving our programs. These funds will also allow us the flexibility to respond to the emerging needs of our men. Rather than taking months to approach funders for new money, with operational support we can quickly deliver money to where it's needed.

Operational support will also help us build the infrastructure to keep our programs running for the long-term. And perhaps most importantly, operational supports allows us to be innovative and get creative in our approach to program delivery.
