ODAAT’s Annual Mom Wells Candlelight Vigil and Community Festival is a day to honor the memory of those lives lost to addiction and HIV/AIDS as well as a free Community Concert on Thursday, July 21st featuring RnB Songstress Christte Michelle on the 2400 block of Leghigh Avenue (in front of ODAAT AFCOM Center)!
We’ve held this event for the past 11 years and each year on this day over 2,000 - 3,000 community residents have participated and connected with community resources, enjoyed free food, fun activities, and paid tribute to those who have passed away from HIV/AIDs, substance abuse and addiction in the community or have been directly impacted by it. Artists and entertainers this year will be announced soon. You will also have the opportunity to hear from and connect with your community leaders.
Then, on Friday, July 22nd we are hosting our annual Back to School Block Party on Mom's block, 1600 W York Street from 12pm - 6pm with free food, activities for youth, back to school supplies and school uniforms.
ODAAT has been a leader in the Philadelphia recovery community for over 30 years working with individuals and families afflicted by various addictions. We believe that recovery does not only manifest itself in substance abuse, but includes mental health, physical wellness, and economic barriers. #RecoveryMode
