Our

Mission

Our mission is to offer a safe and compassionate meeting place in Orange County for family members and friends who have been impacted by Substance Use Disorder and loss.

SOLACE is a place where we openly talk about the disease of Substance Use Disorder, mental illness, incarceration, loss, and healing. We intend to provide families with an opportunity to voice their grief, struggles, fears, tears, and triumphs in a safe place. SOLACE is a place where we won’t feel isolated and a place where we build a sense of fellowship. SOLACE is a place where we can share with our peers so that we learn about or improve coping skills.

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.
