About Us

Who We Are

The Hyer Calling Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit organization established by labor and employment attorney, Kevin Hyer, and his family for the purpose of reducing the stigma of the disease of addiction in the workplace and give men and women in recovery a second chance at a career. Our philosophy is rooted in education, understanding, and community support for those we serve. We are continually working towards a world in which a prior substance use disorder is not a barrier to personal and professional success.

What We Do

At The Hyer Calling Foundation, Inc., we believe in a three-pronged approach to achieving our mission and vision. The Foundation offers no cost individualized post rehab support services that insurance does not cover and which promotes securing and maintaining employment. Our portfolio of services includes job placement, resume review, interview preparation, career counseling and coaching through ICF credentialed coaches, cash grants to acquire marketable skills, recovery friendly networking events, reference advocacy, mentorship programs, internships/externships and much more. Additionally, the Foundation offers cultural competence training and certification to organizations on best practices in attracting, engaging and developing employees in recovery and on the business case for hiring them. Lastly, the Foundation works to break the stereotypes of the disease of addiction that reinforce the stigma which perpetuates it.
