It is with great sadness, humility and a true honor to be responsible for giving our great friend and warrior Anne-Marie Kelly a proper send off and a continuance of her legacy.
In death as in life it was Anne-Marie’s mission to bring people together to help those less fortunate, those who for whatever reason have found themselves living a life that is unmanageable.
She was a driving force in our mission at Cope International “Council on opioid prevention and education” www. Int.com.
To bring all the great organizations that are working as silos, together to address issues like addiction, mental illness and homelessness. Issues that are fundamentally unfair, unnecessary and easily fixable in a nation as rich as ours.
On September 29, 2018 at 10am, Friends, Family and all the organizations that Anne-Marie so tirelessly gave her time to, will gather together to celebrate her life.
The location is 1360 Whitfield Avenue,this is a building Anne-Marie dreamt of turning into a one stop resource center called Recovery Village. I ask you to give, and give generously to her memorial and keeping her dream alive by creating the Anne-Marie Kelly scholarship fund designed to provide people coming out of treatment, the first months rent in a sober living/transitional living facility and the Anne-Marie Recovery Village.
