The Russian River Empowerment Center, our peer-operated program dedicated to helping mental health in the community through peer support and education, has reopened in a new location in Monte Rio. The previous Center was destroyed by last winter’s floods. Even with flooding, the EC has served 101 community members in the past 12 months.
 
Now housed in the former Youth Center at 9925 Main Street Monte Rio, the EC offers a welcome space for lectures, groups, workshops, and activities to support individuals working on mental health recovery. The Empowerment Center is open Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 4 pm.

Thanks to United Way of the Wine Country for their generosity in helping us reopen.
