Dignity for Opiate Users and Steven Andrew recently received a grant from Coffee By Design’s Rebel Blend Fund.
For every pound of Rebel Blend coffee sold or brewed at Coffee By Design coffeehouses during the year, $1 is donated to the Rebel Blend Fund. Every year CBD accepts proposals from Maine artists and/or small arts organizations whose projects may fall between the funding cracks. A committee made up of CBD staff members awards several grants. The Rebel Blend committee looks for thought-provoking projects that have the potential to engage people across the state in meaningful conversation.
Dignity received this grant to support Steven’s Conversations in Compassion Podcast. The grant will support production costs for a year, which will allow for the podcast to continue to create a compassionate and empathetic community with a focus on marginalized populations which include people who use opiates, people with mental illnessand veterans who are homeless.
