COA Holiday Fundraising Drive
Seasons Greetings from City of Angels!
The needs of our community are growing exponentially and more resources are needed. If you are looking to donate to a great cause that gives 100% back to the community, please consider the City of Angels.
In the spirit of this holiday season we are hoping you might consider an end of the year donation to help us continue our mission of assisting those in need of recovery and support services from addiction. In the height of this epidemic, we have found ourselves busier than ever trying to keep up with the needs of the local community. In October alone, we assisted 60 individuals and their families seeking treatment and support services to jumpstart their road to recovery.
City of Angels NJ, Inc. was founded in January of 2009 after identifying the needs in our community of those suffering with substance-use disorders and their families for increased support, interventions and referrals. At COA, we offer support with the hope that we may be able to give people calm guidance as they approach the daily challenges faced by those affected with addictions. We were and still are the first-ever “all-volunteer community-based peer-to-peer recovery center”, as we established and still maintain a no charge policy for our support services. We are a 501 c (3) corporation.
From our early days, the City of Angels family has been committed to helping those who suffer from the disease of alcohol and/or drug use. The losses associated with substance-use disorders are devastating and City of Angels has been there for these suffering families.
