The story behind Chandra’s House of Hope:
The house is named after Chandra Judith Ann Hill who tragically lost her life to a heroin addiction and a co-occurring mental health disorder.
Her father, Dennis Hill, has started a movement in memory of his daughter called Journey for Chandra that is focused on raising awareness and affecting change in addressing the ravages and destruction of addiction and mental health disorders. In late 2017, Tellurian and Journey for Chandra joined forces to explore the possibility of providing sober transitional living for women like Chandra. Plans were made and fundraising was started to make this a reality. Those of us who are committed to fighting the severe damaging and destructive effects of addiction and mental illness in our community know firsthand that our challenges are significant. We also believe that we must work toward creating programs that facilitate and help manage the successful return of our patients back into the community.
Chandra’s House of Hope is able to facilitate this. Hope is a powerful word to those in need. We take great pride in knowing that we have created a safe-haven for our wounded, where they will be treated with respect and dignity.
We continue to need your help in order to provide this much needed resource for women new to their recovery. Through your generosity, we can change the landscape in our community and truly save lives. Your tax deductible gift will help in the continuation of providing a safe home for women who are typically transitioning from treatment back into our community and have very little, if anything, to their name. Please join us in this fight.
