The Hub Kentucky, one of Owensboro’s newest nonprofit organizations, will host “Tacos and Tie-dye” at English Park from 3-5 p.m. Saturday. The free event is the first community activity sponsored by the new group, which plans to start offering services early next year.
“We all know how important community is,” co-founder Blake Templeton said. “We know each person that will walk through our doors is different and as such, everyone’s recovery plan will look different as well.”
According to their mission, The Hub Kentucky is a community organization that helps people in all stages of recovery by providing no-cost support services through educating, advocating, and mentoring for Daviess and surrounding counties.
“We are a peer-led organization that collaborates with all recovery partners to promote accountability, integrity, continuing education, connection and engagement back into the community as productive members of society,” Templeton said.
The Hub Kentucky plans to offer a variety of recovery meeting options and numerous services, addressing a gap that often exists in some recovery plans.
“Services we plan to provide once opened will be telephone recovery support, scholarships for sober living, employment readiness, housing resources, medication access and support, case management and personalized recovery plans,” Templeton said.
The mission of The Hub Kentucky is to offer resources and support all pathways of recovery to foster lifelong sobriety from addiction for individuals and for their families.
“Recovery is a highly personal process and it can occur via multiple pathways,” Templeton said. “Some of those pathways may include clinical treatment, faith-based approaches, peer support, family support, holistic practices, medically assisted treatment and or self care to heal the body and mind.”
As a way to meet others in the community, Saturday’s event is open to anyone. Participants are encouraged to bring their own T-shirt or tank top.
“We hope to start services and open our doors in the first quarter of 2023,” Templeton said. “Whatever pathway you choose, The Hub Kentucky will offer personalized treatment plans that will provide support and resources so that each person has the best chance to be successful towards a life of long term sobriety.”
