We are a group of parents, family members, transition age youth, and adults with behavioral health lived experience who are committed to supporting and assisting peers and working with statewide and national partners to empower children, youth, families and individuals through dynamic supports, education, and advocacy to prevent abuse and neglect and progress towards universal health, wellness, and recovery.
Child & Family Program
We work with parents and family caregivers who have children and youth at risk or who have serious emotional, behavioral and mental health needs. We are the Rhode Island Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America and the National Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health. We are statewide family network funded by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). We are contracted by the RI Department of Education and RI Department of Children, Youth & Families.
Peer Recovery Program
Our peer recovery program is committed to building a strong workforce of individuals and family members in recovery to work with adultswho are in recovery from mental health, substance use or co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. We are funded by RI Department of Behavioral Healthcare Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals to provide certified peer recovery specialist training and to operate recovery community centers in Newport and Westerly. We have a new contract with the RI Department of Health to deliver statewide peer recovery street outreach services in opioid hot spots across the state.
