As of today, we have completed 23 portraits and life-stories. Nearly half-way to the 50 portrait goal! More portrait volunteers are needed, especially in the Cincinnati area. Younger addicts in particular are wanted.
We have had many unlooked-for and positive results from doing the portraits and interviews. All participants feel lighter, more validated as people for having participated. And the McDonald’s gift card we provide every portrait volunteer is turning out to be very, very welcome.
If you’re an addicted person and read this, consider volunteering. You will be welcomed!
