February 1 program meeting

Our speaker for February will be Holly Blalack. Holly is the Program Manager at Peace of Jo, a seven-bed recovery residence for women, which is designed to offer women in recovery a safe, structured, peer-supported, healthy, and loving environment, free from alcohol and drugs.


Holly will share her personal story regarding the role clean-and-sober housing played in her recovery from drug addition and explain how Peace of Jo helps women, both by providing practical support and helping in discovering a spiritual path to a life free from addiction. The program helps empower women to seek treatment and to support others on the path to recovery. Among the offers are a nutrition and fitness program, recovery mentors, and career support in a family atmosphere and a comfortable environment. The goal is to also give residents a sense of community responsibility they can take with them into their everyday lives. 


Join Holly and the women of Soroptimist to learn more about what Peace of Joe offers women, how the organization does it, and what you can do to help.
