A Welcome from our founder Jill Cichowicz

Our history.

When Jill’s twin brother Scott died from fentanyl poisoning in 2017, Jill and her family channeled their grief into a mission to make his death mean something.  In particular, Jill began to tirelessly raise awareness and money to support initiatives that address addiction and that provide individuals and families with the help they need to embark on their journey to sobriety. 

 

In 2019, Jill started a scholarship fund called “A Night For Scott.”  Since its inception, Jill has raised more than $100K in Scott’s memory.  Additionally, in both 2019 and 2020, “A Night For Scott” has been named Richmond’s best charity event.

 

In early 2021 Jill took the next step in bringing life to her vision of ending the stigma of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) by formalizing her work by starting a 501c3 nonprofit called

2 End the Stigma.

Our Mission

2 End The Stigma alleviates barriers to getting help for addiction.

The Scott Zebrowski Recovery House

On June 24th, 2019 the McShin Foundation dedicated one of their men's program houses in memory of Scott Zebrowski to recognize of the amazing work his family has done for the recovery community. Since the dedication, more than 100 men have gone through the program to reach sobriety.

 

It is through programs such as this one, that 2 End The Stigma is able to keep Scott’s memory alive.
