The Trumbull Memorial and Western Reserve Health foundations have approved grants for various programs and projects, including a peer recovery coaches program at St. Joseph Warren Hospital.

Rachael Chacon of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley said the Western Reserve foundation granted $282,108 and the Trumbull Memorial foundation granted $66,497 to local agencies and programs.

Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley received $35,400 from the Trumbull Memorial foundation to establish a peer recovery program at St. Joseph Warren Hospital.

The program, modeled after the Anchor Recovery in Providence, R.I., links individuals who arrive at the emergency department due to a drug overdose with specially trained and certified peer recovery coaches when they are most open to receiving support and services, Chacon said.
