Cazenovia Recovery’s Year in Review
Posted on: January 6, 2015
For Cazenovia Recovery Systems, 2014 was no less than a banner year. On the first day of the year, our agency grew by almost 30% when we took over programs that were once operated by another local organization. Now, at the start of 2015, Casa Di Vita, Ivy House, and the new Supportive Living beds are operating as if they have been a part of our agency for years.
Cazenovia Recovery grew once again in the spring when we began operating a new Housing program designed to serve young adults in recovery from substance use. The Young Adult Housing Program can serve up to 20 young adults simultaneously.
Staff and residents contributed to the community throughout the year, with a highlight being Hands Across Buffalo in May. Our agency saw dozens of staff, residents, and supporters join hands on East and West Ferry Streets throughout the city to help raise awareness about poverty and homelessness in Buffalo. Residents also volunteered at Meals on Wheels, the Food Bank of Western New York, the Buffalo City Mission, Happy Trails Horse Rescue Farm in Eden, and many more places.
In September, we hosted our third annual Recovery Day. The event brought awareness to the stigma associated with recovery from substance use and gave our residents a platform upon which to celebrate their incredible achievements in recovery. In the lead up to Recovery Day, Cazenovia Recovery was featured on AM Buffalo, in the Buffalo News, and in many other local platforms. This year’s Recovery Day was our biggest and most ambitious yet.
Most recently, the Homeless Alliance of Western New York recognized Cazenovia Recovery for the high quality work we do by awarding us with the 2014 Monsignor Henry J. Gugino Organizational Service Award. More information on this award is available on the next page.
We look forward to another positive and transformative year in 2015 filled with life-changing resident stories and supportive staff who are dedicated to the people we serve.
