“Beak & Skiff is inspired by the fearless work that Helio Health is committed to each and every day. It’s clear that their comprehensive approach to recovery is second to none, and we are honored to play a small part in their impactful efforts to help the community. We focused on community residence improvements, as this housing serves as an integral transition for those on their recovery journey. Each step in recovery is one worth recognizing, and this is Beak & Skiff’s way of encouraging patients to stay committed to the healing process.” –Marianne Brennan

Finally, Beak & Skiff employees regular assemble hundreds of pre-treatment prep kits for homeless individuals entering recovery. These kits include personal items, small refreshments, and a hand-written note of encouragement.
