And, so it is with The Healing Place Model. This efficient model of providing homeless men and women with effective rehabilitative services to bring them back from the ravages of alcoholism and drug addiction has a long and proven track record of success. With homelessness on the rise across the U.S., it is a logical conclusion that something so successful should be shared with

working with us include, Norfolk, Virginia, Lynchburg, Virginia, and Fayetteville, NC. The interest is widening and the excitement is growing!

Spring/Summer 2010

So Much to be Grateful For

T

here are a lot of wonderful things that occur in the spring time each year! One of the most important things for us at The Healing Place is that it gives us an opportunity to once again thank all of our supporters for providing the funds to allow us to help people find their way back from the devastating effects of addiction and homelessness. As we thank all of our volunteers and financial supporters, we wanted to provide some brief highlights of 2009 funding: •

Approximately 1,075 donors gave over $2,500,000 to cover the yearly operating cost of our public-private partnership.

These generous contributions came to The Healing Place from a variety of sources: 55 businesses, 41 civic and faith-based organizations and 29 family foundations.

Three major foundations (A.J. Fletcher, John Rex, and the Stewards Fund) contributed approximately $250,000).

these private sources. •

Last year, 65% ($1,650,000) of our funding came from local government sources: the Wake County ABC Board, Wake County, and the City of Raleigh.

The public agency providing the most funding was the Wake County Alcoholic Beverage Control Board ($900,000).

For the second year in a row, the Nationwide Foundation granted The Healing Place $25,000.

In addition to Nationwide Foundation, other businesses providing significant resources in 2009 included SAS Institute, IBM, K & L Gates LLP, D-Wise Technologies, Bank of America Charitable Foundation, Inc., Research Triangle Institute, Redwoods Group, Inc., Waste Industries Foundation, Biogen Idec Foundation and Bryant Restaurants, Inc.

The faith-based community was both a solid source of volunteers plus a number of congregations provided significant monetary donations and/or contributions throughout the year including Crossroads Fellowship, Hillyer Memorial Christian Church, Highland United Methodist Church, White Memorial Presbyterian Church, First Presbyterian Church, St. Michaels Episcopal Church, Baptist Grove Church, First Presbyterian Church, St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church, Baptist Grove Church, Hayes Barton United Methodist Church, Inwood Baptist Church and Millbrook UMC-New Perspective Sunday School Class.

The Healing Place received 1,339 in-kind donations (items such as furniture, toiletries, clothing, household goods, business supplies and books).

Special donations were provided by a number of businesses including food from Daylights Doughnuts, technology from SAS Institute, and coffee from Counter Culture.

Over 950 individuals contributed $350,000 last year towards the operation of The Healing Place. When you combine this with the funds received from family foundations, it reveals that a significant portion ($500,000) of the budget is raised from

The Healing Place is truly a community based organization with strong support from the entire triangle area. The Board of Directors, Board of Advisors, Board of Trustees, clients and staff of The Healing Place would like to recognize and thank all our 2009 supporters. You have truly made a difference; and are “Helping people find their way back.”n

The Healing Place would like to give a special thank you to:

U

• Board of Director Ken Shriver. • Board of Trustee Burley Mitchell. Our sincere thanks for all of your efforts on behalf of The Healing Place. n

.S. Congressman Bob Etheridge and members of his staff visited and toured the men’s facility of The Healing Place on June 2, 2009. The Congressman was provided an update on the The Healing Place program by Vice President Chris Budnick and other Healing Place staff. Mr. Etheridge represents North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district. A relatively high percentage of Healing Place clients were born or lived for a time in that district which includes all or parts of Chatham, Cumberland, Franklin, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, Nash, Sampson, Vance, and Wake counties. “The Healing Place,” said Congressman Etheridge,”represents

a public-private partnership that truly works.” Scott Mauzy, who serves as chairman of The Healing Place Board’s Government Committee said, “We were so pleased that Congressman Etheridge took the time to tour the Men’s

Facility. Based on our discussion, the Congressman had a solid working understanding of The Healing Place and our mission. Because of the success rate of The Healing Place program, we have strong support from both sides of the political aisle. n

Spring/Summer 2010

The Chef’s Corner By Chef Rob, Director of Food Services

H

urray! Spring has finally sprung. The local flowering trees are all ablaze with their colorful blooms. Dogwoods, Bradford Pear, Cherry and Azalea. Each one more brilliant than the other. It is as if they are announcing “The time for cookouts is here!” Nothing excites the senses more than that first whiff of burning charcoal and the smell of hickory smoke. It is time again for my Spring edition of Chef’s corner. I am Chef Rob the Executive Chef at The Healing Place of Wake County, and this is my quarterly recipe and cooking tip for this month’s newsletter. I am going to let you in on a little secret, “I love cooking outdoors!” I love hosting for house guests on my deck with the grill on and the steaks sizzling. Nothing welcomes the emergence of Spring more than sharing a delicious meal that was cooked outdoors over the grill. I have personally experimented with all kinds of grilled delights. I have cooked my fare share of the staples; hot dogs, chicken, hamburgers. But some other ideas you may not have heard of such as Grilled Pizza. Yep I said Grilled Pizza! Who says to enjoy pizza you either have to order from your favorite takeout or kick on your oven inside the house. Ha, not me! Pizza can be enjoyed out on your deck with everyone participating on creating their own personal masterpieces. I did this for my daughter’s 8th birthday party. I made the dough using my absolute favorite dough recipe. Mollie Katzen is the artist who created the Moosewood Cookbook: a staple for any aspiring cooks’ library. This pizza dough is by far the best and most foolproof one I have ever used. After making each girl at the party their own mini pizza they went to work putting on their own ingredients, creating a personal masterpiece! So fire up that grill! And invite your friends over to enjoy this seasons wonderful spring, with two friend-bonding recipes that will kick your grilling season off and will be sure fire hit. n

This Quarter’s Kitchen Tip! When grilling your shish-ka-bobs this summer it is important to soak your skewers for 30 min before you assemble them. I use a ceramic olive boat to soak my skewers, it’s long, shallow shape is perfect for holding the skewers. n

GRILLED PIZZA 1 Batch of Pizza dough 16 oz jar of Pizza Sauce Extra Virgin Olive Oil Assorted pizza ingredients enough for 2 medium sized pizzas: Preheat half of your grill. If you are using a charcoal Webber type grill, just add coals to one side of your grill. If using a gas grill only light one burner side. Once your grill is hot, divide dough in half and stretch out 2 medium sized pizzas. Try not to make them perfectly round, this will add to the uniqueness of the pizza. Generously brush the top side of each pizza with olive oil. Open lid on preheated grill and place pizza, oil side down, over the side of the lit grill. Leave lid up and let dough grill for 60 seconds. Rotate pizza 90 degrees and let grill for another 60 seconds. Remove pizza. Add sauce and favorite ingredients to the top (not grilled side) of the pizza. Return prepared pizzas to the grill, this time place them on the half of the grill that is not turned on. Close lid and let “bake” until edges become golden brown, depending on the amount of ingredients you used this should take about 15 minutes. Remove pizza and cut. Serve immediately. Serves 4

Children’s Book Contest

T

he Healing Place held a Book Contest for pre and middle/high school ages in which they were given 3 weeks to read 5 books and the task for the middle/high school readers was to write an essay or poem from one of their selected books. “We wanted to orchestrate an event that would give the children a strong educational foundation but it would also be fun as well”, stated Ann Hoo, Child Care Specialist for The Healing Place. For their participation the pre-school kids received a back pack filled with books. And for Destiny Sanders who won the middle/high school contest writing a poem about “My Skin”, based upon a book written by Sharon G. Flake called “The Skin I’m In”, Destiny was awarded a laptop computer. “Our hopes are that children transfer the fun they had with this reading contest and apply that to their education and we wanted to show them that they can learn and have fun at the same time, we believe that we accomplished that goal”, says Ann Hoo.

My Skin By Destiny Sanders Will a boy accept me for who I am? All my flaws, my main flaw; my skin. Can I even learn to accept the skin that I’m in? My skin is fine, brown soil that grows the finest grass, millions short and thin, Fills me with insecurity, that’s the power of my skin; The power it has over who I really am. I’m tired of the remarks, I’m tired of my tears, I’m sick of the comments I’ve gotten over the years. For the last time, I GET IT! But the insults stop here. Look at it like this, I am a child of the most high God. I was made in His image, His masterpiece that He applauds. Still I hope one day, one day when a boy will accept all of me, and pay no mind to the content of my skin. When you look at me, judge me mainly by the beauty within, My sweetness and love, Not my skin. Fine, brown soil that grows the finest grass. I can cut it, but only for it to sprout again. So learn to accept the skin that I’m in.

The Healing Place would like to thank Destiny for participating with this event and on writing such a beautiful and memorable poem.

In Memoriam

John Thomas “John T.” Miller Sober-August 7, 2001 SC #53

I

n the quietude of Friday, March 19, 2010 our loved brother, John Thomas Miller was transformed in our absence. John T.’s inspiration and the imprint of his service have left a community and other recipients with a caring and sharing spirit. We find ourselves resigned to this void, for John was a good friend and role model. He was loved and respected by many and clients and staff of The Healing Place thank God for permitting us to be amongst his benefactors. Healing Place hands with John T.’s name have now been added to the “In Loving Memory” memorial board in the lobby of the Men’s Facility. We send our thoughts and prayers to John T.’s family. Chris Budnick Vice President, Programs

Leadership at it’s best as a Community of Professionals come Together to Volunteer

W

e are always grateful to the giving circles in our community and one fine example is Leadership Raleigh which has become a key component to the success of our volunteer program at both our men’s and women’s facilities. We have benefited from many projects that they have adopted through the years, and when a collective group comes together with a purpose to make a difference only positive impacts can be felt.

Leadership Raleigh Class #25

So each year the Leadership Raleigh project teams select projects based upon the interests and skills of team members. The non-profit projects help participants learn how to pull their leadership styles together in a collective effort to support the needs of one of the area’s community organizations. Leadership Raleigh teams have enjoyed working with The Healing Place because they have been able to see their efforts come to life and to support needs of an organization that is doing great work for Wake County”, says Greg McNamara, Educational Programs Manager of the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce. n

From Serving My Country to Being Homeless 1251 Goode Street Raleigh, NC 27603

Nonprofit Organization U.S. Postage PAID Raleigh, NC Catholic Permithome #2283

By Andrew am a peer mentor at The Healing Place. I grew up in a with loving and caring parents and I went to church every Saturday evening. I went to a technical High School and lettered on the Varsity Soccer Team. After High School graduation I joined the US Navy and served 4 years on board the USS Antietam CG54 stationed out of San Diego, California where I was an engineer testing fuels and refueling ships and helo’s (helicopters). I completed 3 tours to the Persian Gulf from 2001 to 2005.

I

It’s more than a shelter…

While in the Navy, alcohol was a way of life. We worked hard and played even harder. I spent many nights having fun drinking at first, but my drinking got carried away and things got bad. I was discharged out of the Navy in 2005. I had become a full fledged alcoholic. Things got so bad that I couldn’t even hold a job and became homeless. After hearing about The Healing Place and having no more options, I decided to take advantage of a place that didn’t want a dime in return except for my willingness to work on my recovery. By this time I was scared and willing to do anything to get my life back. The program works because we work for it. So in return I get to give back what was so freely given to me; my life, and today I am saving money and moving towards becoming a productive member of society. n
