A Message from the Executive Director
As a Recovery Community Organization, one of our core duties is to promote leadership within our community. This means that we give people a place to voice their thoughts and goals as well as giving them the tools to act. We are an organization of people in recovery who are doing what they can to bring about positive changes to individual lives and to our community as a whole.
We teach individuals to set and achieve goals.
Volunteers and staff develop and improve communication skills as they lead meetings.
People learn to share their recovery story, their ideas and how to create new things.
As an organization, we would not exist today without the creativity and leadership of people in recovery. Every program, group, class, and activity that we have to offer was developed by someone in recovery. Yoga, SHINE, Action Planning for Life, All Recovery, Recovery Curious, Stay Out of Jail, Music In Recovery, and Art of Recovery all started because someone in recovery had an idea. This month, we are proud to feature Grupo Latino de Recuperación and Recovery Works meetings which were both developed and started by volunteers.
At Communities for Recovery, we strive to always listen to the needs of the recovery community and encourage the creative ideas from our volunteers on how to fill those unmet needs. This is a cornerstone of our mission to create a healthy recovery community. We are grateful for your support!
