Founded in February 2019, Pink Cloud Foundation is a registered nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in Minneapolis, MN.
Servicing the Twin Cities metro area, and surrounding communities, we provide financial assistance, support services, and other resources to those transitioning to sober housing from in-patient substance abuse treatment programs, or correctional facilities. We also partner with other nonprofit organizations from across the state to assist those seeking long-term recovery from
Deriving it's name from the field of Psychology, the term, "Pink Cloud Syndrome", is defined as "the state of mind, usually experienced in early sobriety (Day 14 to 45)", characterized by extreme happiness, sudden clarity, and over confidence. This "natural high" feels very similar to the "high" we felt during our time actively using. This "pink cloud" phase typically includes stages of unrealistic expectations, which can develop into deep disappointment, and the eventual realization of the inevitable return to life's normal responsibilities and routine.
Due to these erratic swings of emotion, its important to note that a person's highest likelihood of relapse is during this "pink cloud" phase. Coincidentally, it is often during this vulnerable "pink cloud" phase, that many individuals are completing their in-patient program and being discharged from the treatment facility. This is why a smooth transition to sober housing is so critical!
After identifying a serious gap in available resources, and seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in this area, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions and critical resources to those seeking assistance during this transitional phase of their recovery.
Pink Cloud Foundation's mission is to provide financial assistance, support services, and other resources for individuals seeking long-term recovery from alcohol and drug addiction in sober housing.
Pink Cloud Foundation's vision is to make the transition from an in-patient rehabilitation treatment center, or correctional facility, to sober-housing as easy as possible. By alleviating the immediate financial burden on these individuals, we feel, gives peace-of-mind, reduces stress, and keeps them engaged in their recovery program, improves mental health, and their overall well-being.
Simply put, our belief is that a smooth transition into sober-housing and a life of recovery, not only minimizes stress and anxiety, but greatly reduces the chance of relapse during this critical, and often overwhelming, time of change.
