Raymond, a client from Phoenix House Men’s Residential Program in Long Island City is proud to perform local community service during his time in treatment. He is one of many volunteers for God’s Love We Deliver, delivering food to men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other serious illnesses. “It feels great to be able to give back and help others,” Raymond says. “Community service makes me realize how many people are in need of basic necessities. It helps me have a better outlook on life and builds my self-esteem.”
An important step for clients in treatment and recovery is successful reintegration back into their communities. For more than 15 years, our clients have worked to assist God’s Love We Deliver; we are grateful for the opportunity to help them reach the families they serve.
