What about Her?

Our most recent project.

With funding provided through a grant from the Great Boston Council on Alcoholism, our TASK participants speak with women in addition recovery, and give them a greater platform to teach about what it means to be in recovery

Faces of Recovery

This project began with funding by a grant from the Greater Boston Council on Alcoholism.

TASK Advisor/Malden is Moving! Coordinator Chris Murphy, and Paul Hammersley (Malden Overcoming Addiction) worked collaboratively in designing this project.

Their goal was to raise awareness of substance use disorders.

Project Reception

In November the TASK girls presented The Faces of Recovery to the greater Malden Community. The event was attended by the Mayor of Malden, Gary Christenson, as well as members of the School Comittee, and a Massachusetts state representative. All of whom got to see the impact of the project and just how important it is to create more awareness of substance abuse recovery and what resources there are out there for teens.
