Rebuilding Healthy Long Island Lives – Hope and Courage
Confronting the COVID and Opioid Pandemics
Outreach Graduate, Billy, offers some welcoming words!
A tradition transitions, in an unprecedented year
It’s been a tradition since 1995! Every Spring, Outreach’s Long Island Luncheon brought us together to recognize, honor, and celebrate our colleagues and partners in the Long Island business, labor and trade communities whose enduring commitment helps support Outreach’s lifesaving work in building healthy lives. 2020 would have marked our 26th Annual Long Island Luncheon event.
Though the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible to gather in person, Outreach’s work continues and is more important than ever. On September 24 2020, we will host our very first ‘virtual’ “Rebuilding Healthy Long Island Lives – Hope and Courage” event and invite your support. Follow us on Facebook for regular updates!
You can make a difference
The goal of the Hope and Courage campaign is to raise support for Outreach to continue to make a difference in the lives of adolescents, adults and families who are struggling with the devastating consequences of drug and alcohol addiction, and are now having to do so in the face of two pandemics – COVID-19 and opioid addiction. We are incredibly grateful for your compassion and generosity and need your help now more than ever, during this unprecedented time.

During a time of great uncertainty, with the world on pause because of COVID-19 this Summer and Spring, Outreach’s clients and staff united in creative expression. Through beautiful and moving artwork, and collectively joining with colleagues in the field, we channeled our spirit to share positivity, love, hope, and gratitude. Be it colorful butterflies, sidewalk chalk art, or ‘virtual high fives,’ our messages were intended to inspire – stay strong, stay well, stay connected – and to recognize the amazing work of the frontline workers who led the way through double pandemics – COVID-19 and opioid addiction.
