A Message From Our Founders
We began Jenna’s Promise in 2019 after the tragic loss of our daughter to substance abuse disorder. Jenna, ourselves and her brother, experienced first-hand the emotions, trauma, sorrow, and emptiness that so often occurs at every level of the ongoing struggle against the opioid crisis.
So, instead of succumbing to despair or hopelessness, we have decided to turn instead to hope. Inspired by our daughter’s spirit and her desire to help, we have decided to commit ourselves to a greater cause to honor her memory. Thus, the Tatro family is proud to introduce Jenna’ Promise, an organization dedicated to the pursuit of substance abuse prevention. It will endeavor to help organizations which use evidence-based methods to help people that are suffering from substance abuse disorder as well as assisting their families through the treatment and wellness process.
We feel such gratitude for the overwhelming support shown by the community, civic leaders, and volunteers who have shown enthusiasm for this project. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store!
Greg and Dawn Tatro

Jenna’s Promise Is To Save Lives In Vermont
As beautiful as Vermont is, it is not immune from the effects the epidemic of addiction brings. Jenna’s Promise is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating barriers to treatment, as well as recovery services. Our greatest hope is to help bring patients the uplifting and life-changing benefits of treatment.
170 people die every day of opioid overdoses! Vermont is one of many states being severely impacted. Please help us help those seeking treatment.

Our volunteers join us from all walks of life and bring with them individual perspectives and abilities that enhance the diversity of our team. These volunteers are the backbone of Jenna’s Promise and they include college students, people in recovery, people living sober, retirees, seniors, allies, and so much more. There are strength in numbers and we need your help.
