Who We Are
Project Live Upper Perk is a grassroots organization, formed by representatives of the Upper Perkiomen Valley community in response to the growing number of individuals and families who are suffering from substance use disorder (SUD).
Board President: Mary Young
Vice President: Jill Adams

Project Live will provide educational, social, preventative, and rehabilitative support to those affected by Substance Use Disorder in the Upper Perkiomen Valley. Moreover, we aim to strengthen the fabric of the Upper Perk Valley by making inter-agency cooperation the normal mode of operation to care for those in our services.
We will work to attain the financial means to bridge the monetary gap between what insurance companies or government assistance programs will cover for an individual to receive immediate and exigent treatment associated with substance use disorder. (This alone will save lives.)
Foster strong and everlasting community partnerships to better the quality of life of all person(s) suffering, in one way or another, from this disease, now and in the future.
We will form appropriate committees with members who either live or have strong affiliations to the Upper Perkiomen Valley in order to create strong social bonds and effectively do the assigned work of the committe.
Open A Business
Open a business (such as a used furniture retailer) in order to generate income for Project Live. The business would also provide employment to individuals who successfully graduated from the court’s diversion program and are in the process of being reintegrated.
