Familylinks announced today that the agency will formally launch the Power Forward with Familylinks partnership with two-time Penguins Stanley Cup winner Kevin Stevens and his foundation at the Strong.

Mr. Stevens will share his compelling personal story of addiction and the long road to recovery, and Familylinks will outline the agency’s comprehensive array of options for treatment and resources to sustain recovery.
The Power Forward Foundation (PFF) was established in Boston in 2017 by Kevin Stevens, Kelli Wilson and Andy Bernstein, and supports Kevin’s outreach in that region to deliver a message of prevention and education, with a goal of ending the stigma of opioid addiction.
Familylinks also announced that Jeffrey J.Conn, Esq., Member in Charge at Clark Hill, PLC will serve as Honorary Chair for the event. Mr. Conn commented, “I am very pleased to accept the role of Honorary Chair for this event. I look forward to working with Familylinks and Kevin to extend their efforts to a larger audience, delivering essential information for addressing the opioid crisis which is destroying lives every day.”
Frederick A. Massey, Jr., President and CEO of Famlylinks, stated, “In our Vision we believe in the worth of those we serve, and look to assure that all children, families and seniors in western Pennsylvania have the tools they need to be healthy, happy and strong for life. Thus we have brought the title, Strong. For Life, to this important event. Along with Kevin’s powerful message of prevention and education, we offer decades of expertise in addiction treatment and recovery, including our Suboxone Clinic, housing programs and family counseling.”
The luncheon’s program will be focused on providing effective information and assistance to corporate human resources and employee assistance staff, community groups, church groups, and civic organizations in southwestern Pennsylvania.
