about us

The smallest act of kindness can change someone’s life.

Sam Risso Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing resources, guidance, and support to those dealing with substance use, mental illness, and homelessness.

We’re focused on providing resources for detox, treatment, halfway housing, and therapy. We provide peer support and guidance to those in the beginning stages of their recovery journey.

Our Mission

How We Help:

Substance Use

We assist you in obtaining access to detox, treatment, or halfway housing. We help you gain the tools you need in the beginning of your recovery journey to live a well rounded life. Get assistance with resume writing, job search, and budgeting.

Mental Health

We provide access and funding for therapy and mental health treatment. Or connect with one of our peer support specialists for one on one support in your day to day recovery.


With Project Basic Necessity we provide care packages to those experiencing homelessness. We partner with other organizations to provide meals and clothing to those in need.
