Pine Grove does work helping people recover from addiction, mental illness and trauma, and they said they felt Smart would be an excellent guest speaker for their event.
“Well learning a little bit more about what [Pine Grove does] and the people that they help and the difference that they’re making, I just felt like it was a wonderful opportunity for me to come, and that my message aligns perfectly with theirs,” explained Smart. “I mean they want people to heal and to have hope and to live their life, and that’s how I feel.”
