Thank you for supporting Brighter Days

Create Brighter Days and a path of hope and healing for those seeking to rebuild their lives. Thank you!

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.


Words cannot describe our gratitude for your generosity! THANK YOU for showing up and supporting this new model to rebuild lives and equip those suffering with the tools to succeed in life. Because of you, nearly $290,000 was generated to support the Emerge mission.

This week, I spoke with Mike who shared MANY #brighterday moments because of your support. He completed his GED, progressed in his treatment and is now employed. He spoke of his former life using drugs and alcohol as a way of life and how he in now experiencing JOY with a life free from addiction. He starting running, completed a 5K, and is now encouraging OTHERS as he has been encouraged while at Emerge. He is grateful that a place like Emerge exists and is taking his life to places he never imagined. This is just one of nearly 75 stories of men who are seeking to rebuild their lives. This new model of recovery is happening...Because of YOU!

Please spread the word about Emerge and continue to pray and support those we serve. If you attended our event and did not have the opportunity to make a gift, we welcome your partnership and support. A gift of any size will help others like Mike, realize that #brighterdays are possible!

Call or text with any questions: 937.974.6120, reach out for a tour, and we hope you will save the date for Saturday, December 9 from 7:00-10:00 pm for our Hauer Swing Band Christmas Concert. Celebrate at Emerge:

We are grateful for your belief in our mission and the power of second chances!

With gratitude, Elaine Bonner, Event Chair

Our Journey

Emerge is on its way with Phase One, the men's recovery housing program underway with 20+ men residing on our campus, finding hope, wellness, vocational pathways, & a support system on their long-term recovery journey. Read an early review of  our men's program for early August.

"I was lost in active addiction. I'm not ashamed to say this! I may not be where I want to be yet but thank God I'm not where I used to be. The doors of Emerge opened and I was the first through the door and I'm grateful. Awesome opportunities await for those who decide they want to better themselves. The staff are attentive, hands on and genuinely care. The environment here at Emerge is ideal if you want challenged, inspired and shown a new way to live. I am "emerging out of the darkness into the light."

 Embrace the Journey

Thank you for rebuilding lives and restoring hope through a holistic model that creates personalized pathways for healthy and productive lives.
