A Victory for Victor

At various times during the fiscal year 2014-2015, ten men were able to call Tim’s House “home.” Of the six that started off the year, five have moved on to new phases of a positive life in recovery, clean and sober.

Our Community Walk for Peace

The Tim Griffith Foundation’s first Community Walk for Peace was held this spring and was a huge success.  Peace is at the very heart of the work of the Tim Griffith Foundation and was the driving force for our first Community Walk for Peace.  As the Foundation reflected on the ten years since an act of violence took Tim from us and the Foundation began its work of actively promoting peace, it seemed fitting to engage the community to walk together in our quest for peace.

The day started with registration activities including breakfast, tee shirts, a jumpy house...
