United Recovery Fund empowers hundreds of individuals to achieve and maintain meaningful employment, while also cultivating a healing community that helps prevent relapse and recidivism.

Our Model

United Recovery Fund partners with MaineWorks, an award-winning B-Corp social staffing company to support our clients in their re-entry into the workforce following treatment for substance use disorder and/or incarceration.

MaineWorks provides the jobs.

United Recovery Fund provides the support each client needs
to show up to work confidently and comfortably each day.
