NAMI Arapahoe Douglas County Celebrates 20 Years of Community Service
The Arapahoe and Douglas County chapter of NAMI will celebrate 20 years’ of service and support for individuals and families affected by mental illness.
“An Evening of Hope,” hosted by NAMI ADCO will focus on the organization’s strong work in the community to meet the often-silent needs of individuals affected by mental illness, and the families who love and support them.
“NAMI ADCO has served countless individuals and families in Arapahoe and Douglas counties, affected by mental illness over the past two decades,” said Jason Hopcus, president of NAMI ADCO. “Often these families are caught off guard with nowhere to turn for support, or to understand how to support their loved ones.”
The event, “An Evening of Hope,” is from 5 – 8 p.m., Thurs., Oct. 5th, 2017 at the Hilton Inverness. This event features NAMI ADCO’s exemplary work over the past two decades building communities of recovery and hope by providing education, support and outreach to those affected by mental illness within Arapahoe and Douglas Counties.
Additionally, NAMI ADCO will officially announce its inaugural scholarship program, which aims to support students seeking a degreed education in mental health or social service related disciplines.
“NAMI ADCO believes this important program will provide timely and necessary resources to those with a passion for mental health related work,” Hopcus said.
Other community partners sponsoring “An Evening of Hope” include Denver Springs, Kaiser Permanente, and University of Phoenix.
