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.

Journey for Chandra

My Daughter, Our Story, My Mission overcoming heroin, depression and suicide

Dennis Hill is a dedicated and dynamic speaker addressing the issues of substance abuse and mental health. On July 29, 2011, Dennis’ daughter Chandra, tragically took her own life after more than ten years of battling the ravages of a heroin addiction and an untreated mental health diagnosis.

Dennis lived through the depression of her battle and witnessed many of the injustices that she suffered while trying to get help. After several long years of agonizing grief, he is now compelled to tell his story. His message is both inspiring and a passionate call to action. He truly believes that in the absence of light, darkness prevails.

JEREMY’S PLACE

Tellurian is pleased to announce the plan to provide and manage a sober living home for men who struggle with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. After successfully opening a sober living home for women in early 2018, Tellurian has received an overwhelming demand to offer this same resource for men.

The house would be named in memory of Jeremy Andrew Richard Likwarz, who courageously battled mental illness for most of his life. With his love of sports also came many injuries, which led to pain medication prescriptions and later addiction. He fought for sustained recovery with everything he had, but the disease continued to take over and the resources available to him were not enough. After his passing, his mother Patti Likwarz started a movement in her son’s memory called Speak Up for Jeremy. Patti has worked tirelessly to help local affected families who have lost their loved one and those currently struggling with addiction and mental health share their stories, educate, raise awareness, affect change, and end the stigma.

Tellurian recently united with Speak Up for Jeremy to explore the possibility of providing sober transitional living for men like Jeremy. Modeled after Tellurian’s first sober living home, Jeremy’s Place would provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment for men primarily transitioning out of residential treatment. There is a clear vision in place which is supported by a comprehensive business plan, capital campaign, staffing model and oversight, and programming structure.

In order to make Jeremy’s Place a reality, we need your help. Your tax deductible gift will help purchase a home for men transitioning from residential inpatient treatment back to the community. They are so very vulnerable at this point in their recovery and this is such an important, lifesaving resource for men just like Jeremy. Please join us in this fight and help us open more doors!
