Connecting Creative Communities Recovery Center mission is to support, celebrate and empower people with substance abuse disorders through connecting to resources, building the social, human and physical recovery capital of individuals and organizations and providing peer- based support to people in and seeking recovery.
Creative Communities values and respects diverse pathways of recovery as well as embraces and recognizes the diversity within the recovering community. Our primary focus is to help people with substance abuse disorders acquire the resources and skills they need to sustain and maintain long term recovery.
Connecting Creative Communities began as a Community Engagement outreach project sponsored by East Lake United Methodist Church. in June 2018. We visited neighborhood rehab facilities and transitional housing to provide recovery groups and peer support to individuals in recovery. In October of this same year, we partnered with The National Hook Up of Black Women and P.E.E.R Inc. to provide Life skill training and recovery groups to their students in the Womens' Worth project, a workforce development and health initiative funded by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Between the months of October and May of 2019 we have facilitated over 80 groups and workshops and served over 180 women in recovery. In May of 2019 our board was developed. We are growing and building connections with local organizations, churches and nonprofits to provide the best comprehensive mode of care to our participants. COME GROW WITH US
