TROSA Receives $40,000 Grant for Satellite Campus in Forsyth County

RALEIGH, N.C., April 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SECU Foundation recently provided a $40,000 grant to TROSA, a non-profit residential recovery program that empowers men and women with substance use disorder to transform their lives. The funding will help TROSA plan for the continued growth of its housing program with a new campus in Forsyth County.

The site will serve as the hub for providing treatment programs and services for individuals in the Piedmont, Northwest, and Western regions of the state. TROSA is a no-cost resource for anyone in the community seeking treatment for substance use disorder.

“TROSA is a recognized leader in helping individuals struggling with addiction rebuild their lives,” remarked Scott Southern, SECU Foundation Vice President, Director of Grants. “Their determination and strong commitment to serving more men and women through an additional campus is a testament to the shared philosophy of helping those in great need. We are pleased to support TROSA in their mission to help North Carolinians overcome addiction, become successful in their personal lives, and within their communities.”

“As the public health crisis of substance use disorder continues to devastate the nation and state, we are delighted to be in the building stages of our first-ever satellite campus to be located in Winston-Salem. We are grateful to the SECU Foundation for the award of a capacity building grant to help TROSA be at the forefront in the minds of everyone working for recovery – healthcare, justice involved, families, and individuals in the Triad and throughout western North Carolina,” said Keith Artin, TROSA President and CEO. “We have been so warmly welcomed to the region and value the relationships and partnerships we’ve made.”
