Small Successes Lead to Major Victories

Annual Report 2017


Victory Programs opens doors to recovery, hope and community for individuals and families facing homelessness, addiction and chronic illnesses like HIV/AIDS. Victory Programs proudly dedicates our 2017 annual report to: The Bank of America Charitable Foundation, for its wide-ranging financial, volunteer and in-kind support of Victory Programs and its impact on all of our clients through its charitable mission “to make a meaningful difference in communities it serves…and to build neighborhood excellence.” Bank of America Charitable Foundation’s dedicated local leaders, including Senior Vice President Alicia Verity and Bank of America President Miceal Chamberlain, have made a profound impact on all of Victory Programs and the economic mobility of our clients. Bank of America Charitable Foundation and its exceptional individuals like Alicia, Miceal and their passionately committed employees have taken the time and effort to understand our client’s journey from hopelessness to home firsthand. They understand that financial support and human connections go hand in hand, supporting our work with time and resources that meet basic needs in tangible ways. Our friends at the Bank of America Charitable Foundation have deeply strengthened and fortified the lives and health of all of the individuals and families at Victory Programs. And... The Association for Behavioral Healthcare (ABH), led by its excellent and exceptionally talented President and CEO, Vic DiGravio, and his gifted and deeply caring team of advocates and defenders. ABH has diligently ensured fundamental and lasting rights for those seeking substance addiction and mental health treatment on the local, state and national levels, as well as supporting the stability of established, mission-driven organizations dedicated to offering quality care and services. As a founding member of the ABH trade organization for the last three decades, Victory Programs has benefitted time and again from ABH’s empowering action on public health policy, quick organization in response to pending legislation, critical action alerts and countless community advocacy initiatives fundamental to the health, wellbeing, safety and stability of individuals seeking substance addiction or mental health treatment in the Commonwealth.

dear friends of victory programs “The inspiring story of Victory Programs: How small, successful strategic steps became a consolidated, state-of-the-art service provider for our most marginalized individuals and families.” On June 25, 1991, Victory Programs was formally founded, built on the groundwork laid with the opening of Victory House, in 1975. From the first, Victory House served as an intimate, client-centric community that offered the building blocks of health and hope for individuals who arrived isolated, alone, and in deep despair. By 1991, AIDS was reaching a pinnacle of pain, horror and suffering. Many Victory House clients were gravely ill, dying in our residential home because they had nowhere else to go. We desperately wanted to offer long-term treatment for those living with both AIDS and addiction, however, our original mission limited our ability to expand. This was the time to take a bold risk and face this burgeoning, worldwide crisis head-on. Few were as willing, prepared and ready to start innovative programs to meet emerging needs. Consequently, on June 25, 1991, we filed new “Articles of Incorporation” to formally change our corporate name and reimagine our mission to include homelessness, the broader scope of substance addiction, HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses. Our revolutionary, re-invention in this extraordinary time of crisis happened in three small but mindful strategic steps: Step #1. Our Name Change: By changing our corporate name in 1991 from Victory House, Inc. to Victory Programs, Inc., we expanded our reach from a single program/ single contract service model agency to a robust multiservice/multi-program/multi-contract organization. The vision was to meet essential gaps: substance addiction treatment, AIDS services, and transitional and permanent housing for homeless individuals and families.

Jonathan D. Scott, President & CEO

Step #2. Our Mission Expansion and Change: Redefining our mission to an “umbrella organization” allowed us to broaden our core competencies from alcoholism treatment alone to expansive substance addiction treatment, AIDS services, and family transitional and permanent housing programs. It opened the doors to developing ground-breaking new projects and merging with other community based programs. The Victory umbrella gave us the stability to persevere through even the most turbulent times. Step #3. Reconstitute a New Board of Directors: Reconstituting a new Board of Directors gave us the flexibility to recruit individuals from all walks of life who believed in our new vision. Phillip Goldberg, the first chair of the newly reconstituted Victory Programs board, helped navigate the last act of the original board before they disbanded, entrusting Victory House to this new vision of “Victory Programs Inc.” – an agency fundamentally committed to serving all those in need. This change ignited a 26 year journey culminating in an organization that has overseen 30 unique communitybased programs. 19 of those programs are active today, serving more than 2,400 individuals and families each year. From all these small successes, Victory Programs has remained adaptable enough to expand and contract based on current needs. Today, we are here for all substance addictions including the current opioid epidemic, family homelessness, dual diagnosis, and essential health projects addressing Hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS. Implementing these small, strategic steps led to a major Victory – the long-term effectiveness of an agency always willing, prepared and ready to travel first wherever the need is greatest.

Brian Link, Chair of the Board

What Victory means... For Rob, a member of the Boston Living Center (BLC), New England’s largest

For Ellise, a client at New Joelyn’s Home, Victory Programs’ newest residential treatment program, victory means committing to her recovery goals, rebuilding trust with her family, and a better relationship with her daughter. “I watched a close friend overdose, then two days later I was in an accident after nodding out, then I failed yet another drug test while on probation, all within a week,” she explains. “I realized it was either get clean or die,” she says. “My bottom didn’t exist.” Ellise’s drug use was connected to a toxic relationship. “He’s my daughter’s father,” she says. “I had this idea that we needed to stay together and be a perfect family.” Ellise lost custody of her daughter due to her substance addiction. “I need to do this for myself, so I can be there for my daughter. My mother is an addict and was never there for my brother and I.” Ellise understands that reestablishing trust will take time. “It’s great knowing there is support,” she says. “This is a safe place.” She is focused on establishing a routine including maintaining her job and getting herself back on track. “Choosing each day to stay at New Joelyn’s Home is a huge victory.”

community and resource center for people living with HIV/AIDS, victory means facing bumps in the road with the right resources. In 1993, Rob was in New York City working with children living with HIV when he received his own diagnosis. Rob had to leave work due to AIDS-related complications in 1999. “When my professional identity was stripped away,” he says, “I felt that I no longer had a life purpose.” By 9/11, he was in a cycle of addiction and depression as he attempted to cope. He returned to his hometown. “I was going home to die.” Rob started recovery in 2007; however, his illness had taken its toll on his heart. He knew he could find cardiology specialists with HIV experience if he moved to Boston. At the BLC, Rob found resources to secure affordable housing, transfer his healthcare team, and connect with peer support. In 2017, BLC members awarded Rob the Brenda Bellizeare “BIG” Better it Gets Award, acknowleding his journey. “When you are recognized by your peers, not only for where you’ve been, but where you are going, there is no greater reward.”

For Sharisse, a recent alumni of Portis Family Home, a family sober living program, victory means returning to the workforce, finding stable housing, and learning to love herself. Sharisse started using substances fifteen years ago. “It takes a long time to cause so much havoc,” she says. “It takes a long time to fix.” She started “fixing things” by beginning her recovery in March 2016. Eventually, she moved to Portis Family Home with her son. At Portis, Sharisse received support for her housing search and help pursuing education and employment goals. She reentered the workforce and developed an interest in a human services career. “While Sharisse was at Portis she would help other residents.” explains Program Director, Torleah Washington. “She was a real leader.” Sharisse recently moved into permanent housing with her son and says she loves living in a community. “It’s a great place to raise kids! Everything is in walking distance and people are friendly.” She says her son is adjusting and she is putting down roots. “I plan on staying put.”


For the staff at ReVision Urban Farm, victory means

For Curtis, a client of Victory Programs’ Mobile Prevention Team and a member of the Boston Living Center, victory means having control of his health outcomes. In early February 2018, Curtis proudly learned that he is clear of Hepatitis C. “I wasn’t educated on Hep C,” he shares. “I didn’t understand how important it was to be in treatment.” Curtis explains that he had trouble managing his treatments. “If I’m not acutely feeling sick, if I can’t see it, it’s not there.” Curtis joined the Mobile Prevention Team’s Hepatitis C support group last summer and hasn’t missed a meeting since. “Coming to the Hep C support group helped me to better understand the treatment,” he says. “Seeing others excitement about being treated and cured motivated me.” Curtis says that positive experiences while treating Hepatitis C have helped him improve his adherence to HIV medications and improve his overall health outcomes. Being part of a group helps build a sense of community, a key part of his treatment. “I plan to keep going to the Hep C group,” he says. “Having proper support, peer support helps get me through the stress of all this and keep me on track.”

resilience. This past summer, the farm staff took time to assess the challenges with growing on small, urban lots and saw an opportunity develop a permaculture design for the farm. Permaculture is an ecological land design practice incorporating principles that will allow farm staff to think more innovatively about urban farming. “We were able to create a design that will allow us to create a multigenerational food plan that can withstand the instabilities of climate change, the ever present threat of soil erosion and nutrient loss,” says Farm Manager, Joy Gary. “This past fall we began the process of contouring our fields to create microclimates and swales that will slow, maximize, and guide the use of the rain that falls on the property.” With the help of volunteers, the staff at ReVision Urban Farm was able to complete major sections of the available growing spaces. Today, ReVision Urban Farm is one step closer to creating a resilient future for the farm and continuing its mission to provide nutrient dense, flavor rich food for the community for generations to come.

victory programs a year in review New Joelyn’s Home Grand Opening On May 18, 2017, luminaries from across the Commonwealth gathered to celebrate the grand opening of New Joelyn’s Home, Victory Programs’ state-of-the-art residential recovery program for women located in a fully-renovated Victorian home in Boston. The home represents the culmination of more than two-and-a-half years of planning, preparation and implementation to rebuild Victory Programs’ women’s residential recovery services after the unexpected loss of the 47 bed Joelyn’s Family Home facility located on Boston Harbor’s Long Island. Victory Programs is grateful for the support we received from both Massachusetts Governor Baker’s and Boston Mayor Walsh’s administrations, as well as the unprecedented generosity of our friends in the community. In addition to both the Governor and the Mayor attending the celebration and ribbon cutting of this newest addition to the Victory Programs family of health, housing and prevention services, we were joined by new neighbors, staff, supporters and leaders such as Marylou Sudders, Secretary of Health and Human Services; State Representative Liz Malia; Boston City Councilor Tito Jackson; Sheila Dillon, Director of Neighborhood Development for the City of Boston; and Chrystal Kornegay, Executive Director of MassHousing.

Celebration of Life Victory Programs’ Boston Living Center’s 30th annual Celebration of Life was a fantastically fun holiday feast served free of charge in the ballroom of the Hynes Convention Center to more than 700 members of the HIV/AIDS community and their loved ones. The event featured a sit-down dinner; entertainment by the Back Bay Ringers, DJ Ollie, spoken word artist Mason, Verna Turbulence and Friends, and Woza Moya; and a Resource Fair with more than 30 participating organizations. The evening also included the presentation of the Peter Daniel Clark Award for exceptional service to the HIV/AIDS community to Daniel Faucher AKA Verna Turbulence and the Brenda Bellizeare “BIG” Better it Gets Award to Boston Living Center member Rob Quinn, for his leadership in the HIV/AIDS community. In addition to providing a powerful opportunity for people living with HIV/AIDS to gather together, the Celebration of Life serves as the largest fundraiser of the year for vital services at Victory Programs’ Boston Living Center. This year’s event raised more than $130,000 to support programming at the Center! Victory Programs is deeply grateful for all of the generous support of the many people who make this event a success including our corporate supporters, special friends and amazing volunteers!

Gratitude Dinner The annual Gratitude Dinner and companion Manny Jefferson Gratitude Awards for volunteerism date back to when our first program, Victory House, was founded in 1975. Clients at Victory House gathered for an impromptu celebration to cook, eat and share stories of gratitude. More than 40 years later, hundreds of Victory Programs clients, members, residents, alumni, staff, board members and special guests still gather every year to share stories of Gratitude from across 19 health, housing and prevention programs. The event is also opportunity to recognize the exceptional contributions volunteers have made to Victory Programs through the presentation of the Manny Jefferson Gratitude Awards. In 2017, the awards were presented to agency photographer Greig Cranna who, for the past three years, has given his time and talent around Mother’s Day to take photos of mothers and children in Victory Programs’ three family shelters, and Reverend Judy Mannheim for her spiritual guidance and support of the members of the Boston Living Center. 8

Remembering Absent Friends For over 30 years, Jan Quiram’s expansive career guided Victory Programs through thick and thin and just about everything else in between. She carefully coached us from adolescence to maturity. She conceived creative ways to control all the careening and colliding, complexities and perplexities, growing pains and growing gains, in the life of a bold new agency.

In Memoriam

Remembering her Wonder

Jan Quiram Confident confidantconsultant-counselor-coach.

We spent 30 years scribbling down every wandering word of her winsome wisdom. She might answer fiercest fears without worry; calmly with no time for tears: “It’s easy. Here’s what we do. First put one foot in front of the other. Then take a step. You are not alone here. We will do this together.” Is there a single word that could ever suffice? An indescribable friend-woman-mother-wife? Her life? In our world, she was nothing less than Wonder. “The wonder keeping the stars apart” (ee cummings). From day one, she gave us all the goals to start – but most of all – she gave her heart. In 1993, a small, group of young men, each with deep individual fears and struggles, left Boston and journeyed to a country retreat. The photograph of these friends resting on a sunny, late-spring afternoon, still hangs in Victory Programs’ main office. In the picture, standing in back, is John Morris. Seated on the ground is his future husband, Stephen Thomas. 1993 was the height of the AIDS pandemic, when little in life felt secure or safe, and the social stigma for alcoholics or addicts was rampant. Together, the young men shared a deep connection of hope, healing, and the promise that they “will know a new freedom and a new happiness…they will comprehend the word serenity and they will know peace. “

In Memoriam

John Morris

John Morris was the embodiment of these promises. His husband, Stephen, once wrote: “When I met the man of my dreams we were penniless, and jobless, but we knew we could build a wonderful life together and we did… The joy is in the journey. Enjoy every moment and be grateful for everything.” The community of support that binds all of Victory Programs doesn’t happen by accident. It happens because of people like John Morris and his husband Stephen who found gratitude for everything that leads to serenity, peace and unconditional love.

A small Victory at Shepherd House with life-changing consequences for women and newborns Shepherd House, with its capacity of 32 adult women’s treatment beds, broke all precedents this year by working diligently with the state’s health department to expand licensing to include six beds for new and expectant mothers! Shepherd House is the first traditional recovery home at Victory Programs to secure the special license required to accommodate newborns and infants in an adult treatment facility, ensuring that new mothers can return to the treatment program after giving birth rather than facing the stress of finding a new program. Victory Programs’ welcomed the first new mother to Shepherd House in 2017!

How small “TIPS” add up to major opportunities: Victory Programs’ Boston Living Center’s 30th annual Celebration of Life could not have been a record-breaking success without the help of our hardworking TIPS Servers. Not only did they come to the event from all over the Greater Boston area to serve guests and make sure each had a fantastic experience – they also raised vital funding for lifesaving services at the Boston Living Center! Each year TIPS servers act as the backbone of this heartwarming community event. Each individual server commits to raising a minimum of $300, not much by itself, however, all these small “TIPS” add up. This year’s servers collected contributions totaling nearly $30,000 for the Boston Living Center to provide indispensable services like peer support, wellness services, educational opportunities and of course the meals and nutrition program at the heart of the Center. These small “TIPS” combine to make a big difference in the quality of care the Boston Living Center is able to provide for individuals living with HIV/AIDS. v i c t o r y p ro g ra m s

Expanding Job Readiness with a Few Small, Critical Steps: Victory Programs’ Job Readiness Program offers training to heads of households living at our family homeless shelters. The Job Readiness Program has a long history of providing unique, stipend-paying jobs at our ReVision Family Resource Center and ReVision Urban Farm. This year our Victory Housing division expanded the program with a few small, critical steps to give the women a more comprehensive job experience. Prospective applicants must interview for open positions and will have regular reviews of their progress to meet job expectations. Each participant will now work assignments across three job sites: ReVision Family Resource Center, ReVision Urban Farm, and one of the three shelter sites. Rotating job-sites allows participants first-hand experience in urban farm management, general operations of working in a family daycare and family transitional housing oversight. This will give participants diversified experience for their résumés as well as a wider skill set, a necessary preparation for full time employment in the community. In addition to fulfilling the work requirements, each participant will work with a dedicated Resident Assistant for ten hours a week individually and in group workshops to help develop résumés, conduct job searches, prepare for interviews and build expectations about the working world. The combined small steps in our Job Readiness Program ensure each woman has the opportunity to learn and practice transferable job skills such as leadership, customer service and public speaking. Additionally, this process directly builds confidence with each participant, setting her up for success with all the resources and tools she needs to become an independent, self-sufficient member of the workforce.
