Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to support the recovery of individuals transitioning through the Recovery House System in the State of NJ.

Studies show that support around issues of housing and employment for individuals in early recovery from alcohol and drug abuse increase the likelihood of their sustained recovery. Our mission is to support the recovery of men and women transitioning through the Recovery House System in the State of NJ.

This Foundation was created to benefit individuals who need support as they move through the process of getting and staying sober from alcohol and drugs.

The inspiration for the Corvino Foundation is the loss of a brother, son, and friend, Craig Corvino, who succumbed to his alcohol and drug addiction in January 2019. Craig started his journey toward recovery in the New Jersey court system and lived in a Recovery House with the goal of staying sober.

Craig’s sobriety was fleeting as his desire to get high grew and eventually overcame him when decisions about housing and work became overwhelming.

Our goal as a Foundation is to help people like Craig to overcome obstacles to making the transition to a sober living community as they leave a Treatment Center by providing scholarships and a team to support and guide them.

In the end it is up to the newly sober individual to accept the gift of guidance and support, to establish a foundation of life skills to grow from.

The key to long term sobriety is a person’s ability to surrender (to ask for and accept help) and follow directions.

We at the Corvino Foundation Inc. would like to thank you for your commitment to our mission of providing scholarships to individuals leaving one of our Treatment partners and transitioning into Recovery Housing.

We have seen a lot of growth in our last three years and a phenomenal retention rate of scholars completing our 6 month program. Assisting with rental payments and providing each scholar with a Recovery Coach has changed the lives of so many trying to recover from their addiction to drugs and alcohol.

We here at the Foundation have decided to take a big step and become a division of the Herren Project around a new name, the Consortium for Recovery.

This change will allow us to focus primarily on growing our program here in New Jersey and at the same time expanding our program to other states.   With the help of our new Consortium members, who make this commitment possible, we are going to be providing our scholarship and structure outside our New Jersey borders. We are excited about this new phase of our program and hope you will continue to support us moving forward. The link below will take you to our new home at the Herren Project.

Recovery is a journey and change is inevitable.
