About the Organization
The Massachusetts Organization for Addiction Recovery (MOAR) organizes recovering individuals, families and friends into a collective voice to educate the public about the value of recovery from alcohol and other addictions. The organization is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE.
Three Regional Coordinators will represent MOAR (in two of six regions; specifically Northeast Massachusetts and Boston; Southeast Massachusetts and Metro-West; Central and Western Massachusetts) in partnership and government related activities. They will create “Recovery Action Teams” by engaging new members, sustaining current members, and developing volunteer opportunities. The coordinators will facilitate meetings, support training, and guide peer supportive activities. They will maintain the organizational mission and values through all related projects.
