Family and Community Center

Family Lounge, Resources, & Education

Every family and community-based environment can be a source of mental health and wellness, and we want to support those who are engaged in helping, healing, advocacy, and learning to this end. Based on community and consumer input, we are developing the Family and Community Center. Our mission is to infuse peace, learning, and supportive community connections into the lives of family members, caregivers, and friends who are helping loved ones on the road to recovery.

Family and Community CenterThis center will include:

  • A Family Lounge, a quiet space for families to rest, recover, and replenish. The Family Lounge is a new partnership with the Ronald McDonald House Charities that will provide respite for families of children receiving care. It will include an attached kitchenette, laundry, and a play area.
  • Learning and resource rooms, spaces where community-based groups that support recovery can share resources
  • Hosting of community workshops and courses that are free and open to the public
