About Jesse Hawkins

The idea of starting The S.V. Foundation was derived from my own story in recovery, a journey that had many twist and turns, times of feeling helpless and hopeless, like so many of my friends and family members who have been touched by this disease, an epidemic that is touching all sectors of our communities, rock bottom often becomes the foundation on which we can rebuild our lives. For me, it was never my last drink that I feared the most, nor was it accepting the brutal truth that I was powerless too my own internal battle with my addiction, my greatest fear towards recovery was the fear of the unknown, the fear that I didn't understand how to live a life in recovery. The S.V. Foundation is a charitable organization that focuses both on creating a lifestyle worth living while in recovery, through the foundations social movements like "The Mocktail Project," but we are also focused on the objective at hand, and that is to help offset the cost of rehabilitation for individuals who can't afford the help that they need to receive proper rehabilitation. It was a complete stranger's story who helped me to rebuild the foundation on which I live today, and now more than three years of healthy recovery alter I wanted to give back to the 25 year-old me that was once lost and hopeless, thus I started The S.V. Foundation.
