Our Sponsor


Since 2016, the Alkermes Inspiration Grants has awarded more than $3 million in funding to innovative programs that support the comprehensive needs of those most impacted by serious diseases in their areas of focus.  Due to the urgent and unexpected needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the company revamped its Alkermes Inspiration Grants program for 2020 to provide grants to assist nonprofit organizations in their work to urgently address pandemic-related needs for people living with addiction, serious mental illness, or cancer.

Faces & Voices of Recovery is pleased to announce our organization was one of ten nonprofit organizations awarded this special edition of the company's signature Alkermes Inspiration Grants program.  Through our partnership with Alkermes and their generous award, Faces & Voices will ensure RCOs' ability to sustain and adapt peer recovery support services through and beyond the current pandemic by providing RCO leadership with tools and resources to build organizational knowledge, capacity, and resilience in response to emergencies and risks.
