OAK TREE CENTRE OPENING IN MOOSE JAW, FUNDRAISING GALA DETAILS
The keynote speakers for the night are the Voice of the Roughriders Rod Pedersen, and Billy Cuthbert. Both are Persons In Recovery and will share their stories on how they overcame Addiction and Mental Illness.
Oak Tree Place is a non-profit organization where people can come together. It will be a place for people suffering with Addictions but also a place for community. It will also be a place to share, and break down the stigma and barriers of Addiction.
Oak Tree Place will offer daily programming for People In Recovery with a focus on the following:
-"How to get back into the Workforce"
-"Family Support - Mending Relationships"
-"Re-integration Into Society"
Oak Tree Place will also be a place where we can refer people to clinical services, addictions counselors and many other services where people can share and not be judged. We want it to feel as safe as sitting under an Oak Tree!
The Gala will be held at Zion United Church (423 Main St. N., Moose Jaw, SK).
