DYNAMIC CONFERENCE ABOUT MALE SURVIVORS
As conditions improve with COVID safety protocols, representatives from MenHealing are now available as presenters for in-person conferences.
Greg Holtmeyer (WOR Alumnus) is a founding member – in 2018 - of the “Show Me A Helping Hand” Conference at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, MO.
In addition to Greg, the 2021 Conference will include Jim Struve (MenHealing Executive Director) and Drew Wiggins (WOR Alumni and active MenHealing volunteer). Jim’s presentation will be “Social Justice: A Critical 3rd Rail of Evidence-Based, Trauma-Informed Care” and Drew’s presentation will be “From Victim to Empowered Survivor: One Man’s Journey of Healing & the Stories of Healing from Other Survivors.”
Conference registration has been expanded to include virtual access via Zoom. Information about the conference and registration is available here.

90th WEEKEND OF RECOVERY TO BE CONDUCTED NEXT WEEK!
We will be closing out our 20th year of the Weekend of Recovery program this November 5th – 7th with the final WOR of 2021. We are proud to be hosting this landmark 90th WOR virtually via Zoom.
We welcome financial donations from supporters like YOU in honor of this WOR milestone. A yearlong recurring donation of $25/month from three supporters or $10/month from eight supporters will pay the entire cost for one male survivor to attend a WOR in 2022.
90/90 FUNDING CAMPAIGN UPDATE
We are very grateful to each of YOU who have already donated to our campaign to raise $90,000 in the final 90 days of 2021. Through the first 21 days of the campaign, we have received almost $22,000 in donations!
Please consider whether YOU can join us in reaching our goal by making a donation of any amount today!
An anonymous donor has made a generous $250/quarterly recurring donation and is challenging others to match this donation. We welcome any supporters who may be able to match this recurring donation.
MenHealing is able to manage our activities because of deeply committed individuals such as YOU. We invite YOU to help sustain our work by making a donation of any amount. 85% of our operating budget is received from grassroots individual financial donations from supporters like YOU.
A GIFT OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT COMMUNICATES

“YOUR STORY MATTERS.”
