(LAWRENCEBURG, Ind.) -- The Duke Energy Foundation is stepping up to help those struggling with substance misuse and abuse.


The foundation donated $15,000 to the Southeast Indiana Workforce Investment Board (SEIWB).


In 2018, SEIWIB leveraged grant funding to serve individuals impacted by the opioid crisis to build a regional substance abuse recovery system. This regional system is a network of service providers that provide parallel treatment and peer recovery services with employment and training services.


“This new investment from the Duke Energy Foundation provides us with the opportunity to continue our work helping individuals in recovery who need holistic supports and services,” said Kurt Kegerreis, Executive Director of SEIWIB. “Assisting individuals in recovery is a priority for our organization, and Duke Energy Foundation’s continued support is critical to the sustainability of this important initiative.”


This investment will allow SEIWIB to continue to integrate services for individuals in recovery at all the WorkOne locations. These WorkOne locations provide comprehensive workforce and training services for jobseekers in SEIWIB’s 10-county service area.


Since 2015, Duke Energy Foundation has invested $147,500 in workforce initiatives of SEIWIB. These investments have funded youth programming (JAG), apprenticeship expansion, and a past grant for substance misuse programming.
