Long Term Recovery Is Not Just A Goal. It’s A Way of Life.

December 1, 2018 (Parkersburg,WV)--Mid-Ohio Valley Fellowship Home (MOVFH) is the leading organization in the addiction and recovery services for residents in the Mid Ohio Valley. The MOVFH offers five safe, sober and supportive homes for residents that are struggling with addiction.

This year’s Giving Campaign launches today through January 31, 2019. Now more than ever, the Fellowship Home feels the pressure of the addiction epidemic happening in the Mid-Ohio Valley. They need your help to serve more people.

For more than 40 years, the Mid-Ohio Valley Fellowship Home has been a refuge and source of hope for those fighting addiction in the area. Through the facility’s five safe, sober, supportive homes for both men and women, clients receive 24-hour staff support, on-site recovery programming, and community support services for themselves and their children. While clients are required to pay a small portion of the overall expense, the fee is minimal and does not provide adequate funding to operate 365 a year.

Here are just a few examples of how your gift can help:

  • $10 purchases a welcome kit filled with necessary toiletries and basic needs items for a client.

  • $20 purchases basic needs for the homes like paper towels and toilet paper.

  • $50 helps feed an individual in our program nutritious meals for one week.

  • $75 purchases art supplies for a client in our program.

  • $100 will supply gardening equipment and supplies to sustain our community garden for one year.

Your gift may mean the difference between recovery and relapse for a friend, family member, or loved one in need. Please give generously to help us continue this important work in the fight against addiction!

The Mid-Ohio Valley Fellowship Home has helped more than 5500 people in the last 45 years, saving countless families.

“We are grateful for the past support of our community. We have just began this battle against addiction in the Mid Ohio Valley so we are once again asking for your help.” states Board President John Hastie.

The goal of this year’s Giving Campaign goal is $7500. "We were blessed with our anonymous donor which allowed us to set up an endowment at the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation at the end of  2017. We were able to fully fund our endowment with the Give Local MOV campaign in 2018. With the backing of the community we are excited for what is in store for 2019.” states Patrice Pooler, Executive Director of the Mid-Ohio Valley Fellowship Home.

This years giving campaign, Long Term Recovery Is Not Just A Goal. It’s A Way of Life.
