WHO ARE WE?
ROBBY’S VOICE is a community based organization focused on promoting awareness and education surrounding drug addiction.
The organization was borne from the loss of a son and brother, and the need to make sure that other families never have to endure the pain of that loss.
We have experienced that loss, and live everyday wondering, in hindsight, what we could have done differently. As we experience this journey, we realize how much we did not know, how much we did not see. Not because we were not aware or engaged, but because the game has changed and we had just not caught up.
The epidemic is growing, and unless we, as a community, increase our efforts to create awareness, more young people will perish, and more families will have to live with that pain.
Robby had a dream; he wanted to speak to students, to help them choose to “live clean.” He did not have a chance to see his dream come true, but we will make sure it does. We Are Robby’s Voice.
What We Do?
ROBBY’S VOICE will work diligently to ensure that parents and students have a resource available to stay informed, and most important, to BREAK THE SILENCE.
We will promote learning and awareness of drug addiction by offering in-person programs, sharing our story and our experience. Robby’s Voice will provide relevant information while serving as a portal to “BREAK THE SILENCE.” Our newsletter will continually deliver updates that raises the awareness of substance abuse and help those currently affected by addiction.
It is our mission to ensure that you always have a place to turn to for guidance, information and support.
What Can You Do?
Simply put, the key to winning the war against addiction lies within the efforts of the community. Law enforcement cannot arrest their way to victory, we must take our communities back through education, awareness and prevention. We are the most powerful weapon in this fight.
We invite you to join our Team and get involved. Statistics tell us that you will probably be affected by addiction in your lifetime. We can change that and you can be a part.

FR. CHRIS WEBER– Fr. Weber (St. Mary’s of Berea Catholic Church) is the spiritual advisor for ROBBY’S VOICE. Fr. Chris planted the seed for the foundation of ROBBY’S VOICE as he counseled The Brandt’s about the importance of love and service in their quest to find peace after Robby’s death. Fr. Weber has become an invaluable resource as he selflessly serves as a resource for families and addicts that contact ROBBY’S VOICE looking for direction, as well as a rock for the family as they continue their journey. Our thanks go out to Fr. Weber!
