And so we have a community now, I’m part of the community, how about that?

The Russian River Empowerment Center is a peer-managed center providing a place for individuals with a history of behavioral issues to find food, friendship, and family-like care. The Center offers members the use of phone, computer, T.V., and couch for talk or a time-out.
There will be new and ongoing art projects, with guest artists.
