Fort Lauderdale, FL, June 7, 2017 – Spark of Hope treatment center and Partners In Hope adopted a street in Margate on Southgate Blvd and Rock Island Rd. The adopt-a-street program offers local businesses and volunteers the opportunity to monitor and clean a South Florida street for a period of one year. Volunteers from the business is solely responsible for cleaning the designated street and keeping it free from liter during its tenure.

“Spark of Hope’s mission is to ensure that our clients in recovery lead a productive lifestyle,” said Jasmine Vicente, Behavioral Health Technician at Spark of Hope. “Programs such as Adopt-a-street allows us to not only keep our mind, bodies and spirits clean, but also our community as well.”

Spark of Hope will be taking clients over to the dedicated street to help clean up on a weekly basis. Broward County provides all the materials for cleaning. There is also a sign on the street dedicated to Spark of Hope’s efforts and recognizing the efforts of those in recovery.

“We think this is a valuable experience for clients,” said Antony Joyce, Clinical Director of Spark of Hope. “It teaches humility and allows our clients, many of whom are struggling with their own maladies, to give back to the community that supports them through their struggle with addiction.”

Spark of Hope treatment center will be responsible for this street through 2018.
