The Chinese Bamboo Tree

It takes daily watering and nutrition with five years of care before a Chinese Bamboo tree breaks the surface of the ground.  Then it takes 9 weeks for it to grow 95 feet tall. The lesson is that we do today what will grow tomorrow, staying true to ourselves, our values and faith. Even when we see nothing, we know something is growing which will be later the reward for what we do today. 

The Bamboo Tree is our philosophy in providing the Families Impacted by Opioids and other addictions. We plant the seed, it take time to nurture, then the results are seen.

 It starts with a seed of knowledge and a willingness to change. 

Our field for planting is when we get together the families on their journey with those professionals who are available to help them.  By doing this we are taking the first step towards empowering our community to respond in a proactive and forward thinking way. This is a community epidemic, it will take a community solution.
