The mission of HOPE Sheds Light is to raise awareness and educate individuals, families, and the community about the impact of addiction by having the courage to share personal experiences and offer strength, wisdom, hope, and resources that lead to a positive community change and long-term recovery.

In 2021, HOPE Sheds Light entered a joint venture with Recovery Advocates for the Shore (RAFTS) to expand its recovery services throughout Ocean and Monmouth counties. RAFTS Inc. is a non-profit, non-clinical, peer-based recovery community organization providing support and resources to individuals and families impacted by substance use and related disorders. We do this by providing in-house meetings and transitioning to outside meetings, family education, peer recovery coaching, telephone recovery support, and sober living assistance. RAFTS conducts training programs for peers using the latest evidence-based curriculums and various community events. Through these efforts, RAFTS aims to raise awareness, reduce stigma and promote long-term recovery.

Through this collaboration, HSL and RAFTS will create a community where non-judgmental support is standard and multiple pathways to recovery are embraced. HSL will enable RAFTS to grow its capacity in a way that will make those pathways possible. HSL and RAFTS will continue to expand their services to young people and families in recovery by offering programming that will engage adolescents and young parents to effectively end the generational cycle of addiction.
