  • About the event

    The Hope Dealer Project - Background:


    Under the outstanding leadership of Tara Mayson, The Hope Dealer Project was founded in 2015. The organization's unwavering dedication has garnered significant local and national attention and impacted countless lives by offering support, care, and resources to those battling addiction and their families. THDP is a nonprofit organization deeply committed to aiding active addicts in finding their way to treatment programs, be it detox, rehab, or sober living. Our efforts also extend to providing financial support for admission fees, necessities, and unfortunately, at times, end-of-life expenses stemming from tragic overdose deaths.

    We were elated when local Mayors endorsed our cause to honor National Recovery Month - an overdue recognition until 2023. The heartening gesture of “Going Purple” has now resonated statewide, thanks to the Governor, showcasing West Virginia’s resilient spirit in the face of the opioid crisis through our commitment not only local level but throughout the state.


    We are excited to announce the West Virginia Goes Purple Annual Summit & Gala. This event is set to celebrate the tireless efforts of our local and state politicians, devoted business sponsors, and the invaluable community members at the forefront of this movement.
