Drop-In Center

How We Help

The Drop-in Center provides a safe and comfortable peer-led gathering place for adults in our mental health programs, and for those who are transitioning from life in a nursing facility to life in the community. This is a place free from stigma and judgement. Here, we build support and connection.

"We have participants who come to Drop-in Center every single day. Why? Because they're respected and treated with dignity. The staff respect them. The participants respect them. That's what we do here, and I just love it."

- Maggie Hettman, Quality Administrator
