Impact Your World
Last Chance Intervention - West Coast Redemption
My name is Clint Richards, I am the Founder and President of Last Chance Intervention. We are a non-profit organization based out of Prescott, AZ. We have been traveling the West Coast since 9/11/2012 performing intervention services in the most sordid spots we can find. We have gotten people off the streets and sober in Arizona, Utah, Nevada, California, New Mexico and Washington. I uploaded 1/4 of a video that explains our mission. The entire video is in the YouTube link that I have pasted below.
I feel that we are a perfect candidate for you because we truly work hard and make a positive change in the world on a daily basis. We have had news coverage in Arizona, Las Vegas, Albuquerque and several bloggers have posted stories about us.
We have gone to the extremes to get national attention, but we are yet to get any true feedback. In December 2013 we rode foot powered scooters from Prescott, AZ to LA (524 miles lasting 8 days on the road) in an attempt to get some attention and some funding to continue our good work. In the end we were very sore and had made no progress in our mission other than helping get 2 people off the streets on Christmas day. But even though our efforts were not noticed much, we still continue to do everything it takes to make a change.
We currently have car washes and small fundraising events on a regular basis to fund out trips and provide money for our treatment scholarships, and we will not stop doing this because there is a huge drug problem in our country and it takes organizations like ours to truly make a change.
You gave me 8000 characters to fill out here, but if you really want to see what we do PLEASE watch the YouTube video, this will tell way more than words can say.
Thank you for considering us,
