Who We Are
Promise Resource Network (PRN) is a grassroots non-profit that is boldly committed to recovery, wellness and healing from trauma, mental health, substance use, homelessness, poverty and incarceration.  As an agency that is operated and staffed by survivors of similar experiences, PRN offers opportunities for people that are uninsured to find their voice, grow resilience, and recover from significant emotional distress. 
Why We Do It
Mental health, trauma and substance use issues effects every one of us in different ways.  People must be surrounded by examples, possibilities and opportunities for wellness if they are going to heal and reclaim their well-being.  PRN’s team knows how illness messages alters ones worldview, shatters hope and creates cycles of more illness.  This is why PRN is designed for resilience.  
How We Do It
PRN supports individuals to reclaim meaning and purpose of their experiences by exploring their life through 8 Dimensions of Wellness (emotional, physical, spiritual, vocational, financial, social, intellectual, and environmental well-being).  We provide information, peer support, education, and access to resources in each of the dimensions.  In our commitment to building wellness-based alternatives, PRN assists in the start-up of organizations and initiatives that are operated by people in recovery, such as NC’s first recovery High School, Emerald School of Excellence.  Additionally, through Peer Voice NC, PRN is incubating and launching a statewide movement of people directly impacted by social justice issues, to lead efforts in policy, legislative and behavioral health system transformation.
