Seven Steps to a
Better World

Together, we can reach more people; improve prevention, treatment and support services; and educate more people about the triumph that recovery is for the lives of those it touches.


1. Fund Us

We are grateful to the many individuals who have supported the work we do, by bringing public and/or private resources to the table.  Your decisions and influence have far-reaching impact, and the people we serve are immensely enriched by your generosity.  

2. Donate

Recovery Resources is a 501c3 nonprofit agency, so your contributions are fully tax deductible.

We welcome contributions in cash and cash equivalents, stocks, bonds and real estate. Your gifts help individuals receive the addiction and mental health services they need, regardless of their ability to pay.

Specify any of our funds, make an unrestricted contribution to the annual fund, arrange a planned gift as part of your estate, or donate items that enrich our variety of client programs and special events. Donate now or learn more about giving to our funds.  For more information, please contact Michele Krampitz, at mkrampitz@recres.org.

3. Underwrite Our Events and Outreach

Our many programs, and the people who use them, are always in need of in-kind and cash gifts – items that cannot be purchased with food stamps are in short supply for struggling families.  Toiletries, paper goods, household supplies and bus tickets are examples of items we are always seeking.

Our client and community events need food and serving supplies, prizes and gifts for children, and other novelties to make the events special, and meaningful, while also practical. Please consider underwriting a client event, or contributing goods towards its success.  Please contact Michele Krampitz, at mkrampitz@recres.org. for more information.

One of our most important functions is to change the public perception about addiction and mental illness, and those who live with them. We know how deeply damaging the stigmas surrounding these illness are, and we will continue to inform, educate and enlight at every opportunity. You can help in this effort by offering to tell your own story, and/or by specifying that your donation be directed to our ongoing communication efforts.  For more information, please contact Michele Krampitz, at mkrampitz@recres.org.

Recovery Resources’ funds honor very special friends

James’ Fund

1986-2014
James’ Fund honors the memory of James Grant Dolezal.

Casey’s Fund

Casey Coleman was a legendary sports broadcaster who covered Cleveland’s favorite sports teams and events for more than 25 years.  He was known in the community as the voice of the Browns, but to Recovery Resources, he was simply our friend.   As a staunch advocate for recovery Casey lent his story of addiction with the hope to inspire others to seek help and to triumph over the disease of alcoholism.  Casey's fund has evolved into what is known today as #CaseysKids was established to encourage leadership skills for school-aged children and to teach techniques to resist peer pressure against alcohol and substance use. Funds donated will support prevention services to reach more students, enhance programs and empower at-risk youth with tools for greater success in life. Learn more about our education programs.

Helen's Fund

Helen's Fund honors the memory of Helen K. Jones, former president & CEO.
