Hope Harbor a need for Troup

In our weekend edition, we published a story about Hope Harbor, who hosted its annual event Hope’s Harvest.

This event helps them secure Friends of Hope Harbor donations in which people make monthly contributions to the organization. Hope Harbor is a 12-month long, residential faith-based program that serves women who struggle with addiction.

The program started 15-years-ago by Dan and Stan Clark. Now it works with the judicial systems in Troup, Harris and Meriwether County. This program helps helpless women in the midst of their addiction and brings them to recovery.  The program is state-regulated, but not state-funded. It relies on donations from churches, Friends of Hope Harbor and people in the community to help fund the program.

The annual Hope Harvest event featured four recent graduates from 2011, 2012 and 2014 to share their success stories. They said that without the help of the program they would either be dead or in jail. That the program helped them control their addiction and reach a point where they don’t need drugs to cope. This program is a tremendous help to women who face the challenges of addiction and hopelessness every day in our county and beyond. Without the donations they receive, the program would not have the success it has had today.
