A Message From Our Founders

Hello Friends,

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 use prevention. It will endeavor to help organizations which use evidence-based methods to help people that are suffering from substance use 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!

God bless,

Greg and Dawn Tatro

Providing financial assistance, facility support, and event hosting for all those helping with recovery efforts.

There are strength in numbers and we need your help.

People early in recovery process are strengthened by "Volunteer Peers", by providing support, resources, and encouragement from a first person perspective.

Share Your Inspirational Moments

Whether you are religious, spiritual or none of the above, prayers, inspirational quotes and mantras can become a valuable source of positive affirmation when someone is battling drug addiction. The inspiration that guides Jenna’s Promise is knowing that Jenna herself was devoted to helping others, even in her darkest moments. Send us your motivational stories, quotes and prayers, so we may share them and guide others.

Uplifting and inspiring stories, quotes and prayers can ease the stress people in recovery face...like anxiety, depression and doubt. They find strength to succeed and new opportunities for self-growth.

Jenna’s Promise Is To Save Lives In Vermont

Our greatest hope is to help bring patients the uplifting and life-changing benefits of treatment.

Thank You
Hi Barry and friends at Jenna's Promise, Thank you so much for your assistance with my rent at Stonecrop. Things are going very well. I've made great friends in the house and am enjoying helping other women get acclimated to sober life both in the house and in AA as a whole. I have been working like crazy as a daily substitute at SA Barnes Elementary, catering for Sugarsnap, and waiting tables at Burger Bar in Colchester. I've also had a lot of time for fun. We went as a house to seen one of my favorite bands perform on Halloween and it was an amazing night! I'm currently on the bus to visit my family and my pets for the first time since I moved back to Burlington, and it should be a very nice weekend. Thanks again, and don't hesitate to contact me for help with any events related to Jenna's Promise! Best, KB
