Hi Neighbor!


We affirm that everyone's human rights be protected and recognized. We are a network of advocates fighting for community development and fostering self-sustaining populations through community-driven positive change.  

Public Health Bulletin

Thanks to our collaboration with Nicole Rossetti, a social worker originally from Garfield, we have been able to compile a list of resources for those that may need help with their addiction as well as their mental health in general. Mental health has become a priority during these times when so much change has occurred in less than a year, so do not feel afraid to reach out for help. Helping yourself helps those around you.
