        Parents Helping Parents Inc.’s mission is to provide information, resources, and support from shared experience to parents who have children of any age struggling with substance use disorder.

 

        Our core existence is focused directly on practices and measures of health and public safety.

 

        Like all of you, we have been closely monitoring the continuing rise of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths, a number that now tops the record previously held by the 1918 influenza epidemic for the highest number of deaths in the United States resulting from a disease event.

 

        Hoping that things would turn around, we waited until what we thought was the latest date possible to decide about going ahead with our Hopeful Horizons 2021 fundraising event as planned or whether to postpone it due to considerations of health and safety.

 

        After conferring with our featured speaker, William Moyers, vice president of public affairs and community relations for the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, the PHP Inc., board has unanimously voted to move forward the event until next spring.

 

        While are disappointed, we are also happy to announce a new date of Thursday, April 28, 2022 and a new exciting venue, the Oklahoma City Zoo.

 

        The zoo offers a vibrant and comfortable outdoor space for the event, which we want to fun and casual, but should we encounter inclement spring Oklahoma weather, there is an adjacent indoor space, ample and airy, which will greatly mitigate any lingering COVID-19 concerns.

 

        So come rain or come shine, we WILL be celebrating Hopeful Horizons together next spring.

 

        We apologize for the lateness of this announcement, necessitated by the circumstances of monitoring COVID and then of coordinating the new date and place, and we truly appreciate the patience of our wonderful sponsors and community members upon whose support we count to help finance the vital services we provide to families and the recovery community at large.

        Your patient support of Hopeful Horizons helps us provide our parents with valuable resources, great speakers, education, a free lending library, peer to peer support, and more, and especially the Parents Helping Parents Virtual Chapter that helps us reach parents across the state and the nation.

        Sponsorships for the event are available now! 

        We’re working now to acquire a tempting array of gifts and services for a great prize raffle. Our $1,000 and above sponsors will have an opportunity to participate in some Swag Bag fun! Every guest at the event will walk away with a bag full of promotional items and information provided by our $1,000 and above sponsors. Interested in a customized sponsorship? We'd love to talk with you.
