The Prevention Council staff are very excited to be opening a Recovery Community and Outreach Center at 86 Briggs Street, Suite #6. We are happy to welcome Ginger Cato as the new Coordinator of the Recovery Center. The goal of the Recovery Community and Outreach Center is to create a safe and welcoming place for all people in recovery to find assistance and support of any kind to prevent relapse and help them achieve and maintain long-term recovery. Ginger will refer individuals needing employment, housing, clothing and food, education, and other support services to local community services providers. Space will be provided for self-help meetings, substance-free recreation, and social activities. The foundation of the Recovery Center will be peer support and peer-driven activities.
The development of the Recovery Community and Outreach Center was made possible by a grant from the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). The Grand Opening will be on June 16th.
