Host An Event
Host an Unshattered party in person or online! An Unshattered party is an event hosted by you where we share the story of Unshattered and the Walter Hoving Home. You’ll get to hear personal stories from women about how the Hoving Home saved their lives. This unique event gives you the opportunity to invest directly in the lives of women recovering from addiction.
AN EVENT CAN BE SUCCESSFUL IN 3 WAYS:
- You and your friends learn about the Walter Hoving Home and how this program changes lives.
- You have a resource to refer someone in need, now or in the future.
- You shop and/or donate!
OK, I’M INTERESTED, TELL ME MORE!
- Unshattered exists to build pathways toward sustained sobriety and economic independence for women who are winning their fight against addiction.
- Encourage guests to check us out ahead of time at Unshattered.org and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (unshatteredNY).
- Products range from ~$5 – $150. We accept payment or donation via cash, check or credit card.
- ONLINE PARTIES via Google Hangouts. We’ll help you with the set up so guests can be present on multiple screens. Online parties are a great way to connect with those outside our area who care about rebuilding women’s shattered lives. Bags will be uploaded to our store in advance.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO AS A HOST?
- Provide a location for the party and invite your friends.
- Provide a light snack/drinks.
Please do not serve alcohol or have it visible/accessible that evening.
- Provide table space for the display of merchandise (we can bring tables if needed).
- Be enthusiastic about the ministry and why you were inspired to host a party!
- Out of respect for the hard work these women have done in recovery, please make sure your alcohol/prescription drugs are not accessible in public areas (kitchen/bathroom counters, cabinets, etc.). We trust our women, but we recognize they are still on their road to recovery and ask that you assist us by not inadvertently creating a temptation.
WHAT WILL YOU TALK ABOUT AT THE EVENT?
- An overview of the Walter Hoving Home, 49 years of rebuilding lives shattered by addiction.
- The purpose and structure of Unshattered and how it builds paths forward.
- Personal testimonies from Walter Hoving Home Ladies who are currently in or have graduated from the program.
