|OCEANA, WV – Today, Gov. Jim Justice awarded a $250,000 check to fund several upgrades to the building that will house nonprofit organization One Voice’s new community-based recovery facility in Oceana.|
“Nothing makes me more proud than to be with you in Oceana, presenting this check for such a great cause in such a great community,” Gov. Justice said.
One Voice Inc. is a charity that supports individuals and families struggling with substance use disorder and other life controlling issues in communities in Wyoming County and all across West Virginia.
“When I was young, I would come to Oceana in the summer with family and friends for months on end,” Gov. Justice said. “There’s no way it could’ve been any better. But then we fell on some really, really tough times. We were dealt some tough cards from the standpoint of our coal industry and then, all of a sudden, before you know it, drugs started crawling into our lives more and more until they impacted every single one of us in some way.”
