Mission

Emily's Hope is a legacy charity in the name of a prolific painter whose life was cut short. We are raising awareness of the opioid epidemic, stopping the stigma of addiction and helping to offset the cost of treatment. With your help, we can offer hope and recovery to more people struggling with addiction. Removing financial barriers is one of the first steps toward restoration, not only of the person suffering from substance use disorder, but also their entire family.

Prevention Education Curriculum

Emily’s Hope is developing a prevention education curriculum for students K-12. Our curriculum is designed to teach children the effects of substances on the brain, body, and life, in order to promote healthy choices. Our lessons address the science, social, and health aspects of substance use, as well as dealing with difficult emotions and the wellness of the entire family. Our team of medical, education, and addiction specialists are committed to providing tools for schools to reduce the number of overdose deaths in the United States.

The Emily’s Hope Education Committee has been working hard to complete our first pilot program, which will be tested in a third-grade classroom in Dell Rapids in the fall of 2022.
