Help someone this Thanksgiving

The Partnership at
Joseph, Thanksgiving is a time for celebration.

But for many families touched by substance abuse, it can be a time for anxiety and confusion.

As a Parent Support Specialist, I talk to parents in crisis every single day. Around the holidays it's especially painful, as worried parents strive to mend their families: a mom trying to get her son into treatment before Christmas; a dad desperate because his daughter might not show up at all because of drug addiction.

This week, as you gather with family and friends, please think about the families whose Thanksgiving might not be so happy.

Help make sure we can help every family who reaches out to us by donating $25 or more to support The Partnership.

Donate today.

So many parents I talk to don't know what to expect this holiday season. They call our Parent Toll-free Helpline because they're searching for answers, because they have nowhere else to turn.

Giving them support is why I come to work every day to pick up every call, and why on Thanksgiving, I'll take an extra moment to look around the table at the people I love and know how lucky we are.

In honor of someone you love, help make sure every family has a happy and healthy holiday by chipping in $25 or more to support the Partnership:

Together we can make sure no call for help goes unanswered.

Thank you,
