Proud Individuals who are beating addiction

One of the first organizations helping People of Color

 Immensely changed my life. I’d probably still be homeless

Everyone who walks in the door is treated equally

POCAAN was able to help me in ways that no one else was

 I don’t know where I’d be if it wasn’t for POCAAN’s help
