Children of Addiction Awareness Week Feb 11th-17th – Help Spread the Word

The Lisa Michelle Memorial Fund was founded to assist students who have lost a parent to addiction. We want to also promote and spread the word about other worthy causes who help those children of addicts.

The Children of Addiction Awareness Week is coming up starting February 11-17, 2018.

“Addiction is now a national health epidemic. Overdose rates are on the rise. Every child or teen living with parental addiction is vulnerable to the pain, isolation, and fear every single day. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

COA Awareness Week — recognized around the world during the week Valentine’s Day falls — honors the struggle of these children who live with parental addiction. This year’s theme — Empowering Children to Heal — highlights the importance of providing kids and teens with support, guidance, and encouragement to heal.”

The National Association for Children of Addiction (NACoA) believes that none of these vulnerable children should grow up in isolation and without support.

To help in these efforts, they do the following:

• We work to raise public awareness.
• We provide leadership in public policy at the national, state, and local levels.
• We advocate for appropriate, effective and accessible education and prevention services.
• We facilitate and advance professional understanding and action.
• have affiliate organizations throughout the country, Great Britain, Germany and Canada and support the development of affiliates in Brazil and Poland.
• publish a bi-monthly newsletter
• create videos, booklets, posters and other educational materials to assist natural helpers to intervene and support children
• host this site on the Internet with information about and ways to help children of alcoholics and other drug dependent parents.
• send information packets to all who ask, and
• maintain a toll-free phone available to all. 

Help spread the word and bring awareness to this cause!
