The Children’s Foundation and the Jamie Daniels Foundation jointly awarded Michigan State University’s Collegiate Recovery Community a grant for nearly $30,000 to support students navigating recovery from substance use disorders.
The Children’s Foundation President and CEO Lawrence J. Burns said the grant reflects the organizations’ mission to improve the health of children in Michigan.
“The Children’s Foundation and the Jamie Daniels Foundation remain committed to helping MSU students successfully recover, stay in school, graduate and live healthy and rewarding lives,” Burns said.
CRC Coordinator Dawn Kepler said the grant will fund a live-in recovery housing support specialist student position and will contribute to the development of the Jamie Daniels Memorial Scholarship endowment fund. Named after a former MSU student who lost his life to substance use disorder after graduation, the endowment will provide sustained academic and financial support for students in recovery at MSU.
