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.
We believe treatment options should be accessible to everyone who needs it. Our vision is to see people go from rock bottom to living as productive members of society.
We have partnered with several facilities to give our participants the best treatment options for their needs.
Our goal is to help people get back on their feet and give them the foundation to start their new life. We aim to make the reintegrration process easier and provide social support during this hard time.
Sam Risso started where a lot of other addicts have started. He lived in Baltimore, MD and struggled with addiction, depression, and homelessness.
He was given a way out when his close friend bought him a train ticket to Florida.
This is when his whole life changed. He got sober, became a successful business owner, and started helping other people as a way to pay it forward.
He used his own money to fund detox, treatment, and housing for those in early recovery. He dreamed of founding a nonprofit organization because he knew he could help so many more with donations from people like you.
His life was taken suddenly and tragically in a senseless act of violence.
This is why we started the Sam Risso Foundation. We aim to continue his work of being a source of light in people’s darkest moments.
