TIME SENSITIVE: Please Help Someone to Find their Purpose, Voice and Community!! (3)

NYAPRS Note: Once again, NYAPRS has to find a way to respond to a very large number of requests for consumer scholarships to attend an Annual Conference that has meant to much to so many. We turned to our E News readership for help and so far you have donated funds to allow 11 individuals to experience for the first time what many have called an ‘awakening’ (see below for more). Please help us help more individuals to join us this fall by sending in your donation at http://www.nyaprs.org/donate/index.cfm. Thank you!

Please Support the Next Generation of Recovery Leaders to Find Their Hope, Inspiration, Voice and Community!

Dear NYAPRS E-News Readers,

For over 3

decades, the NYAPRS Annual Conference has given thousands the

unforgettable opportunity to find the hope, inspiration and support to

create a new vision for what is possible

within their lives....and the

information to carry that forward.

Along the

way, it has become one of the most acclaimed and admired events in the

nation, well known for its unparalleled spirit and celebration of

recovery, rehabilitation, rights, fellowship

and a full life in the community for



else can you learn so much from over 100 of the most gifted presenters

in the state and nation, experience healing sessions, enjoy the spirited

Cultural Diversity Bash and eat and

dance to your hearts content at our

famous outdoor BBQ, all set in a retreat-like setting within the lovely

Catskill Mountains?


each year, it's gotten harder and harder for us to extend this

life-changing experience to the next group of emerging recovery

champions and leaders, and we find ourselves no longer

able to subsidize the scholarships as

we have for decades.  

 Your tax deductible donation of $399 will cover the full cost of registration, lodging, all programs and sessions and meals. Of

course, we greatly appreciate whatever you can give to help bring hope

and healing to those who could never attend otherwise. Please read the

heartfelt testimonials below!

feel like I am a part of a community and know that I can live a

fulfilling and active life.

I owe all of this to being given

is the first conference that I have ever been to that is largely

represented by individuals who proudly state that they have "lived

experience". I saw each and

every person see their

own specific recovery in their own eyes.  The NYAPRS Annual Conference

normalizes, allowing all to come together to learn, collaborate,

communicate, socialize, support and to most of all have fun with one

and again, I've seen how transformative this Conference is and how it

jumpstarts and recovery of so many of our members. They come back

looking like new people...with

so much more energy and

resolve to take hold of their recoveries and their lives.

NYAPRS Annual Conference is one of the most extraordinary events in the

nation. I'm always struck by how many of the workshop presenters

typically keynote at other

such events. The heart of

the experience comes from the hundreds of consumers who are clearly so

grateful for the spirit that celebrates hope and recovery.
