The Recovery Community Network, the brain child of Major John Donovan of the U.S. Army (Retired) has received a significant grant in the sum of $143,000 from the State of Minnesota, which will be used, at least in part, to fund a full time position to work with the Veteran community, as well as working with community agencies including Veterans Administration, The St. Cloud Police Department, The Central Minnesota Justice System, as well as Central Minnesota Mental Health Center, and Veterans Services Officers.
