2022 Annual Report
No matter what.


Chris Budnick, Executive Director

Riding on the heels of our 20th anniversary, we entered 2022 encouraged and energized by a yearlong, community-wide outpouring of love and support! Little did we know just how badly we’d need the extra boost in order to sustain us through the year ahead … a year in which we faced COVID variants, alarming increases in homelessness, and yet again, record-breaking demand for our recovery services. Through it all, we came out stronger on the other side — in large part because of YOU (our incredible village) and because of our dedicated staff and program participants. Each of you is to be applauded for your efforts. Thank you!



TOTAL REVENUE – $6,160,575*

TOTAL EXPENSES – $6,452,493



In December 2022, our 1,000th silver chipper graduated from our longterm recovery program! Healing Transitions has helped thousands find recovery over the last 20+ years, but it takes a very special man or woman, combined with an unwavering commitment, to stick around long enough to become a silver chipper.


Meet Paul Baker, silver chipper #1,000. He first walked through our doors in June 2006 and stayed six months before leaving. We didn’t share another encounter with Paul until 15 years later. On September 21, 2021, Paul says God led him back to Healing Transitions to finish what he’d started. The rest is history!


2022 was a challenging, yet productive and rewarding year. We welcomed three new board members after three wonderful members fulfilled their terms (including our first-ever female alumna, Anita Neville). We also created our first-ever Emeritus leadership position for co-founder, Maria Spaulding. So much to celebrate — including an extremely successful capital campaign, construction at both campuses for expansion, anniversaries, Silver Chip ceremonies, Order of the Long Leaf Pine inductions, resuming the Fred Barber “Legacy of Service” awards, and above all, our dedicated staff who work tirelessly to serve all in need, no matter what. And to our incredible village — thank you for your commitment to recovery.  — Evelyn Booker, Board Chair


To each of our 1,599 generous donors (650 of whom were first-time givers), our 100+ community partners (including healthcare providers, first responders, employers, nonprofit partners, educational programs, and criminal justice, recovery, faith, fitness, and housing organizations), our countless volunteers, and our unwavering staff, we thank you! Without you, we could not move our mission forward. We are beyond grateful for your support and commitment to recovery no matter what.
