Our Vision

As participants in the 6th leadership class of Next Level Trainings (VIP 6), part of our transformational curriculum is to create a large-scale community service project for a local non-profit. Our vision was to support and empower families and individuals who are recovering from drug and alcohol dependency, to mobilize the community to bring new perspective on the issue of opiates and addiction, to create hope, healing and joy for those who are experiencing adversity and seeking freedom and recovery. We were given just 30 days to envision the unimaginable, create the impossible and deliver the unobtainable. See the impact we made and join us in continuing these efforts.

VIP 6 Columbus proudly supports Marin's Hope

Marin’s Hope serves all individuals looking to recover and those in need of addiction-related services. They also serve parents, relatives, and spouses looking for help for a loved one and doesn’t know where to turn to for help. They have many services available including sober living, counseling, scholarships to rehab, referrals to rehab, interventions and other services related to recovery and addiction.

By providing housing, resources, and services, it inspires the hope they need to end the stigma and suffering of addiction, and supports their lifelong recovery. And their recovery returns hope to our community.Marin’s Hope empowers our families, our children, our friends, who are struggling with alcohol and drug dependencies.
