Tyler's parents, Shelly and Travis, founded Hope United two years later to bring awareness and support to families struggling with addiction. Today Hope United serves Summit, Stark and Portage Counties, Ohio with programs including support groups and Breaking Barriers, the educational program in area middle and high schools.
We appreciate your charitable gifts which will help Hope United realize its vision for Tyler's Redemption Place, Northeast Ohio's first Relapse Prevention and Wellness Center, as well as supporting Hope United's mission to work toward safer communities, healthier families and ending the stigma of addiction every day. Thank You.
