Staff at Awakenings had a meeting and tour with Congressman David Trone, Congressman and Attorney General candidate Anthony Brown, and Mayor of Hagerstown Emily Keller. Employees spoke with them about some of the barriers Awakenings faces, and how they can help us break those barriers.

Trone, Brown, and Keller also spoke with two of our clients to get their perspectives, and one of those clients discussed the specific hurdles to seeking treatment as a transgender person. Emily Keller is a major advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community and they had a great dialogue.

We really value open, transparent discussions like this because they help us grow as an organization. We are always looking to improve our services so that they are accessible to everyone; we want to allow anyone struggling with addiction the opportunity to change their life.
