The Nation's Challenges


  • 19.7 million American adults, age 12 and older, battled a substance use disorder in 2017 (American addiction centers).

  • Suicide was the second leading cause of death among individuals between the ages of 10 and 34, and the fourth leading cause of death among individuals between the ages of 35-54 (National Institute of mental health).

  • Nationwide, 19% of students in grades nine through 12 in the United States admit to being bullied on school property (Stop

  • Nearly 700,000 children in the United States are abused each year.  An estimated 678,000 children were victims of abuse and neglect in 2018, which is the most recent year for national data collection (National children’s alliance).

  • On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States.  During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men (National coalition against domestic violence).

  • Every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted.  One out of every six American women has been a victim of attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (Rape crisis center).

    • People want help, but do not know where to turn

    • If they do find help, most can’t afford it

    • Few places accept people unless they have insurance

 Without replacing the hopelessness mindset caused from trauma afflictions & addictions with positive thoughts, hope and spiritual faith, relapse is almost always inevitable. 

Our Program & Vision

Because of the challenges our Nation is facing, our #1 goal, is to make sure NOT ONE PERSON who calls upon us for help is told, 

“Sorry we can’t help you.”

The World is Not Going to Stop for my Broken Heart 

Author - Amy Jo Giovannone 

The purpose of this book is to inspire, educate, and help. I want hurting people to see that regardless of our tragedies or present circumstances, we don’t have to live in or cause misery. I want people to know that when we’ve been stripped of everything that really matters, including our heart, faith will still be there just waiting for us to lean on. In a world where everything has such a high price, faith is free and powerful and it’s ours for the taking. No one can take faith away from us--only we ourselves can do that.
It’s okay to smile. It’s okay to laugh. And it’s okay to have fun even though a big piece of your heart is gone. It’s okay to enjoy life without feeling guilty. The best way to honor your child, your love, your sister, your brother, your father, or your mother is to live this life with no regrets. Your children who have passed would never want you to self-destruct. They would want you to do everything you’ve always wanted to do and try to be as happy as you can. Of course, they wouldn’t want you to forget about them. So don’t. Do all the things you’ve always wanted to do, and talk about what they would say or laugh about if they were here. Cry if you must—that’s okay too. But don’t stay in a miserable state. That would sadden your loved one the most. Depending upon which messages or lessons you want to absorb and relate to as they pertain to your own life’s circumstances, there is much value in this book for every reader. It is here to freely provide hope, faith, and love to all.
