Solace For Hope’s 2nd Annual Ornament-A-Thon:

Sunday, December 5th, 2021
4-8:00 PM
Solace For Hope Meditation Garden
145 West Main St.
Tustin, California

Last year’s first-ever Ornament-A-thon was a huge success, despite Covid concerns, and this year promises to be even bigger and better!

Bring a loved one’s photo to place inside an ornament ball, and have it displayed on our outdoor SFH Tree of Remembrance throughout the month of December!

All proceeds will benefit Solace For Hope, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that offers grief support, healing, and compassion for anyone who’s been impacted by Substance Use Disorders.

Committees are being formed to help share the work, and help make this event even more awesome! If you are interested in volunteering, either leading up to the event, or at the actual event, we would love to hear from you. Together, we can do great things.

More information coming soon!

Our mission at Solace For Hope is to offer safe and compassionate meeting places for family members and friends who have been impacted by Substance Use Disorder and loss.

At Solace For Hope, we openly talk about Substance Use Disorders, mental illness, incarceration, loss, and healing. We create a safe space to give families an opportunity to voice their grief, struggles, fears, tears, and triumphs. Solace is a place where we build a sense of fellowship and community, so that we don’t feel isolated or alone in our journey, and can improve our coping skills with compassion and understanding.

About Us

Our Team

Our team of volunteers, headed by Maggie Fleitman, is dedicated to aiding those affected by Substance Abuse, for family members, friends, or those in recovery. Members on the Executive Board of Solace for Hope have lost a loved one due to Substance Abuse in most cases.

Our History

Solace For Hope™ was started in 2012 under its original name “Solace” when founder Maggie Fleitman sought out help to cope with the loss of her oldest son Mitch at the age of 22 due to an overdose. Since then thousands of family members, and those in recovery or seeking support have attended a Solace meeting or event. Since 2019 our cause was officially made a 501(3)(c) charity and its name was changed to Solace For Hope™ to better describe its meaning and function as an ongoing support group.

Our Goals

Solace For Hope™ goals is to provide comfort and support, understanding and help to those who have lost a loved one, are supporting a loved one in their battle against addiction and those who are in recovery programs nationwide. Solace For Hope™ seeks to offer meetings and interaction via online and in person to anyone in need in a non-judgmental setting. Solace For Hope™ will train any individuals or groups in need of the proper use of Naloxone by a certified instructor. Solace For Hope™ intends to raise funds to open Solace Detox centers and support nationwide.
