Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. Seeks Circle of HOPE Members

Utica, New York – In 2022, the Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. (CFLR) launched a new initiative: The CFLR Circle of HOPE. This initiative provides a means for individuals to become involved in supporting the programs of the Center for Family Life and Recovery by committing to a small monthly gift. One story that sticks out, is Jim’s story, in fact you might have seen his commercial/testimonial he helped us create this fall. Jim is part of our Peer Alliance program, a program we are so proud to offer to the recovery community. Peer Alliance is a series of training courses that help both, those already in recovery along with those trying to get into recovery. Jim’s video is attached below for reference. It truly is about paying it forward. To date, our program has a 100% graduation rate, in fact, many of our trained peers have received and accepted jobs in other community agencies as Peer Advocates.

Unfortunately, the funding for this lifesaving program is at risk for the coming year. As you contemplate your year-end giving, please consider providing Help and Hope with a year-end gift to CFLR. Your gift will provide valuable support for Recovery and Prevention programming. Join with other givers to empower people to achieve recovery!

With a pledge of $25.00 a month, or more, people become part of an exclusive group dedicated to providing sustaining support all year in easy to manage, automatic gifts. Select the monthly amount you can give, and it will be automatically charged to your account monthly on the day you select.

Your monthly support can help in so many ways:

  • $25.00 – Help us spread awareness and resource materials with 5 HOPE bags
  • $50.00 – Help us offer engagement opportunities for those in recovery
  • $100.00 – Provides family support groups to help families during the recovery process
  • $250.00 – Provides training, mentorship, wellness, and support to grow our peer alliance
  • $1,000.00 – Help provide suicide prevention programming to local high schools

Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. is proud to be the area’s leading expert in advocacy, prevention, counseling, and training. As a community partner, it is important to us that we continue spreading the message of help and hope to our area and with those whom we work.

Along with supporting individuals and families struggling with addiction, mental health and behavioral issues, CFLR’s goal is to inspire Hope, provide Help, promote wellness and transform lives. The vision of CFLR is to be a leader in creating a world where people have the power to achieve and celebrate recovery. To learn more, visit
