Jenna’s Promise ~ Our Mission

Our mission is to create a network of support that will help people suffering from substance use disorder. We wish to open doors and remove the barriers for people seeking treatment, ensuring healthy and sustaining patient recovery. 

We will strive to create pathways for patients to reassimilate into society by supporting the transitions from this disorder to recovery to independent living. Finally, we want to make this journey easier for people with substance use disorders and their family members.

To accomplish the mission of Jenna’s Promise, we must surround each affected individual with all the support, kindness, and role-modeling that a community can provide. We must tear down the stereotypes associated with addiction and realize each person is a human being that needs help. That help starts with providing infrastructure, innovative thinking, guidance, and funding for treatment facilities, housing agencies, support professionals, donors, and parents.

Vermonters living in recovery can face a very long and winding road, and wherever that road takes people, Jenna’s Promise is here to support and guide you through the potholes.

Join our Vermont network, and let’s work together!

I received financial help from your organisation last February with rents at the recovery house at which I still reside in Burlington. At that time I had very little in health or life or happiness. At 8 months into my sobriety I have a decent job where I am trusted and counted on, a good chunk of savings in the bank, my drivers license back after many years, a car that I love. I've lost nearly 40 pounds being active and eating well and have better health than in many years. I also have regained my confidence and dignity as a functioning person that can now give help instead of needing it. I am not totally happy just yet but I'm not at all feeling bad about my life which is more than enough for now. Most importantly I have hope and a solid foundation from which to move forward with my life. I struggled for the better part of two decades. Thanks for being there to help me finally help myself.
We are forever grateful for all you have done to help us and our son and so many other families!!! We hope to help you in return along this journey helping others. Tyler is now over 6 months in recovery and I know he is thankful and grateful for all you are doing to help others! Looking Forward to helping in anyway we can. I believe sober homes are a key to recovery.  
I would like to thank for all your help, your support, both financially and your encouraging words! Being able to remain at the Liberty House is giving me the support that I so desperately need in order to keep my sobriety. I think that you are an amazing man – we need more people like you in this world. Thank you so much for Everything, KC.
I would like to thank you again for helping me achieve my goal of getting into Suburban Square Sober living. There is no way this could have been possible without your generous help. I arrived on Monday, March 30, and am doing great! April 3rd makred by 30 days sober date and I fee so grateful and hopeful. I attend A.A. meetings at least once a day, found a homegroup and sponser, attend thereapy twice a week. I make daily goals and follow through with them, and am working every day to become financially stable again. Although that proves very difficult during this time, I have not given up. Living a sober life is beautiful and rewarding! It feels so amazing to finally be putting my sobriety first, so my lief and loved ones don’t come last. Thank you again for all you have d one for me, it will never go unappreciated. Forever Thankful, CM
I just want to reach out and thank you guys for all you have done for me and have helped me. I’m very grateful and apricate the help you have given me to continue living at the VFOR Sober House. Without your help I don’t know where I’d be but I have a safe and sober house. You guys are so amazing to help people and help them to stay sober. Thank you so much. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! AS
I’d like to take this moment to say thank you very much for your generous gift. Words do not describe my gratitude. Your compassion inspires me to keep moving in a positive direction and pay it forward one day. With Gods grace and love, and wit the 12 steps of A.A. and N.A. I’m sure I will achieve this. God Bless.

I dont know where to start. Dawn and Greg are such incredible people. without the help ive recieved from jennas promise I would not be almost 4 months clean today. They have turned a tragic situation into the opportunity to help SOO MANY people find the world of recovery! Dawn has been a HUGE support to me through this journey and helping me navigate my way from treatment into sober living. I owe a lot of my success to her and greg. Their strength and determination is beyond words. Dawn and Greg I cant say thank you ENOUGH. I love you guys. and I can almost guarantee Jenna is with you both every step of this journey. ~ Tiana D.

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
Thank you and Jenna's Promise for your assistance. I am extremely grateful to have moved into Stonecrop and Jenna's Promise is part of what made it possible. I'm very grateful to Lauryn as well and feel fortunate to have connected with her and Stonecrop. Actually, I'm feeling amazingly grateful to be part of the community here and also for my new house mates. Thank you for your support. I'm very optimistic about being here. I'm happy to be here. Thank you for helping make it possible. A happy and healthy holiday season to you, yours and Jenna's Promise and an excellent new year as well! With much gratitude and respect, MRF
