If these stats alarm you, please consider donating to Peters Place Foundation. Peter's Place is a Non-Denominational Christ-Centered ministry aimed at providing free long-term residential support for young men (ages 18-28) who struggle with substance use/abuse and mental illness.

Right now, in Southern Illinois, there are very few resources available to help those in need.  Board members Eugene Dunkley and Jeff Morris, on 11/9/19, are going to run the 2019 Tunnel Hill 50/100 Mile Ultra Marathon in Vienna, Illinois.  They would love your prayers, encoruagement and financial support as they seek to raise money and awareness for Peters Place Foundation.
