Access To Recovery Program seeking Pro Bono Legal Advisor

Access To Recovery http://hawaii.gov/health/substance-abuse/ATR/about.html is a leading program in Hawaii that is assisting to affect positive recovery outcomes for substance abuse clients committed to the recovery process, on the Island of Oahu within the Child Welfare System.

Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) is the State agency that has been designated as the division of the Hawaii State Department of Health with the responsibility to administer Federal funds for implementing the Access To Recovery Project.
Currently, as year 3 funding draws to a close, a new board (non-Profit 501(c3) consisting of current ATR providers & community members are working on taking what is great about the ATR program & is evaluating the existing aspects of the Hawaii ATR model to identify a format for moving forward in an informed, evolving strategic plan to sustain the model beyond the end of the current ATR program which ends September 22, 2010.

We are in need of a Pro-Bono Legal Advisor to sit on our Board of Directors. The Board of Directors meets twice a month for approximately 2hrs.

If you or anyone in your organization is interested in this endeavour, please contact A.T.R. Director Bernie Strand (808) 692-7522 or myself Sean Donohue 697-7300

Thank you for your assistance.
