Voices of Hope held it’s ribbon cutting ceremony for our Aberdeen location on Friday, September 3, 2021. The Harford County Council presented a proclamation welcoming VoH to Harford. Opening remarks were made by Danielle Akwara, Director of Government and Business Affairs from Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger’s office, Harford County President Patrick Vincenti and Aberdeen City Councilman, Adam Hiob. Tours of the beautiful facility were given, our Hope Street RV was available for people to visit and many VoH Peers, volunteers and supporters were in attendance. One of our Peer Recovery Specialists, Jerah Griffith, shared her story of engaging with VoH Peers at our Cecil Recovery Community Center, entering treatment and now working as a Peer with Voices of Hope, sharing her experience, strength and hope to those still suffering. Many of us were moved to tears by the warm welcome of Harford County, the hope and promise of working together with community partners to save lives and empower families struggling with substance use disorder.
