Who We Are

Mountain Top Cares Coalition (MCC) is a 501(c)(3) Recovery Community Organization providing direct support to individuals and those impacted by substance use in Greene County, NY. MCC is the sole organization actively providing support to the mountaintop region.

300+ Engaged with MCC and Counting
MCC has already engaged over 300 individuals affected by substance use, in the mountaintop region alone, through various forms of support highlighting the high demand for MCC's services.

What We Do

  • Individualized one-on-one certified peer support for folks struggling with substance use or on the path to recovery (learn more about CRPA's here)
  • Daily services & programming
  • Support Groups (Family Support Group and Women in Recovery)
  • Recovery friendly social events
  • Community education and engagement
  • Harm reduction (Narcan Training, Community Narcan Boxes)
  • Recovery workforce initiatives
  • Advocacy
  • Provide & help navigate referral networks to other supports and additional recovery and treatment services.

Challenges in Our Community

Access to recovery services in Greene County, especially the mountaintop region, are severely limited.
  • High rate per capita of substance use, overdose events and overdose deaths
  • Rural, spread out service area
  • Constrained employment prospects
  • Lack of access to internet and/or devices
  • There is no safe, welcoming and private facility for support services
  • Poverty
  • Lack of affordable housing
  • Food insecurity
  • Transportation impediments
  • Stigma associated with people in recovery and the recovery process

Alarming Statistics:

  • In 2021, the opioid overdose crude rate in Greene County was 46.3, nearly double the upstate New York average of 23.5. (per 100,000 population)
  • Between 2019 and 2022, 52 Greene County residents lost their lives to overdose, with 20% of these deaths occurring in the mountaintop area.
  • During the same period, Greene County witnessed 401 overdose events.
  • In 2022, most overdose deaths in Greene County occurred in people in their 40s (54%) or in their 20s (18%).
  • Fentanyl was involved in 91% of overdose deaths in Greene County in 2022. Xylazine is now suspected of contaminating 20% of supply further complicating overdose events.
  • Additionally, almost 19% of adults in New York State engage in excessive alcohol use, resulting in over 6,700 deaths annually in the state.

The MCC Solution: Outreach Center

A Recovery Outreach Center would provide a safe and welcoming location for those we serve and our staff.

It would allow for the expansion of the MCC team, daily programming, support groups, tools available, and training programs.

Services provided by MCC would help folks in recovery navigate the multifaceted socioeconomic challenges.

Having obtained comprehensive plans, a secured location and robust community support, MCC is poised to establish a much needed Outreach Center to further assist our community in need.

Rare Opportunity

  • The alignment of resources and community support are infrequent in the realm of recovery. Now is the time for progress.
  • Your donation would support a valuable institution that actively improves the well-being of individuals and families grappling with substance use disorders and recovery in our area.

Request for Support

  • We kindly request financial support to turn this vision into a reality and directly benefit our community. We are seeking both grant and private funding.
  • We are prepared to provide comprehensive information on the budget, timeline, and anticipated outcomes of this project.
  • Your partnership could bring hope, support, and recovery to the mountaintop.
