CARITAS: A Celebration of St. Vincent Charity in Cleveland

Friday, October 13, 2017 | Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland | 300 Lakeside Ave. East

Join us in the fight against addiction 

Proceeds from CARITAS will be dedicated to the expansion of addiction treatment services at Rosary Hall. St. Vincent Charity is committed to saving lives today and over the long term, while conducting research that initiates models for more effective care and treatment. For more information outlining its 65-year history of success in addiction treatment, as well as plans for expansion, please visit endourepidemic.com. Take a moment to read the stories from the people and the families who have been impacted by addiction. They are both heart-wrenching and hopeful.
