WAYS TO GIVE

Find your Best Way to Give

The Jamie Daniels Foundation was established by the Daniels family in honor of their late son, Jamie, who died from an overdose at the age of 23 while receiving treatment for addiction. Despite the support of his family, Jamie’s life was tragically lost due to substandard care and the predatory practices that exist in the billion-dollar addiction-recovery business. The Children’s Foundation assists the Jamie Daniels Foundation with fund development, financial management, and generating awareness about the opioid abuse epidemic. Resources generated through this collaboration are used to further the Jamie Daniels Foundation’s mission of assisting individuals and families who are struggling with addiction by providing the education, resources, professional guidance, and the support they need to make recovery possible.
