Jacob Shelley, CDCA serves as a Case Manager to coordinate and connect clients with resources and support in treatment and recovery.  He will share with us the story of Emerge including how this nonprofit was founded, their unique mission, and progress to date. Emerge was founded in June 2021 by three entrepreneurs with successful businesses in the skilled trades, Emerge Recovery & Trade Initiative was created to address the workforce shortage in the skilled trades and the increasing needs for emancipated youth and those battling addictions to lead healthy and productive lives.  The Emerge campus includes 45 acres and more than 200,000 square feet of mixed-use space. The holistic ecosystem of care will allow for all services to occur at one location, including residential, case management, SUD treatment, group and individual counseling, faith-based opportunities, life skills, mentoring, vocational training, apprenticeships, and job placement.
