About: Hope Connection International (HCI) is a multi-faceted recovery and prevention center that connects with nonprofits worldwide to empower survivors of abuse and addiction by offering free support groups, classes, and sponsorships with tailored solutions, along with supportive long-term housing. Hope Connection is helping people in crisis through the healing process by providing a safe environment for them to connect and share their hurts, find peace, and ultimately be restored as healthy, contributing members of our society. Our positive prevention program can be part of a general continuity of care plan that supplements, rather than replaces, current mental health intervention systems. Access our calendar on our website at www.hope-connection.org/calendar to see details and contact information for support groups and classes offered.
