WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe that all people struggling with addiction (especially the homeless, uninsured and underserved) deserve services on demand – as many times as it takes – to find recovery. And we never turn away anyone who’s seeking help.

BECAUSE recovery can’t wait.

PURPOSE

Our mission is to offer innovative peer-based, recovery-oriented services to homeless, uninsured and underserved individuals with alcoholism and other drug addictions. Our program is specifically designed to rekindle a person’s desire and ability to return to a meaningful and productive life.

VISION

We envision a community where addiction is treated as a health issue and no one dies waiting for services.
