Nikki’s Wings of Hope Foundation
Nikki was a beautiful and caring your woman who died from a drug overdose. Nikki touched many lives and her friends and family were hit hard by her passing. Losing Nikki left her family wondering how they could make sense of this horrific loss. Instead of grieving privately out of shame and disbelief, Nikki’s family chose to honor Nikki by helping other struggling families and individuals. By binding together, they could help others and keep Nikki’s memory alive.
Nikki’s Wings of Hope Foundation provides scholarships to survivors of drug additions and supports programs that help addicts and their families.
