MBRLC Annual Party

It seems like simpler times now but we wanted to share some of our regularly programmed updates!

On January 15th, 2020, we held our annual holiday party.  Classical guitar provided by a member of Tunefoolery provided ambience as we celebrated our year and gave out awards!

Crooked Jacket Photovoice

As part of the Photovoice project at Waverly Place, MBRLC Community Member Crooked Jacket aka Michael Sienna created this reflection:

Kickflip, heelflip, Ollie pop and jump over the barrier. Which is scarier? Skateboarding or overcoming an emotional barrier? The connection is made, over time we all fade. We do it for the joy, not for any money that’s made. BAM, SLAM, eating pavement or your own foot – These are some of our challenges, with many more to boot. That’s why I’ve got to root for my own self and for yours to boot, too. But in the end, it all evens out – as long as we get up each time we fall, as long as we face our fears when our back’s against the wall. That way we learn it’s a process that never ends and that it’s a much better journey if we bring some friends. Over and out. This is the end, until we see what’s around the next bend. – Crooked Jacket

Annual Barbecue


On September 26th, the Boston Resource Center hosted the MBRLC Annual Barbecue and Wellness Fair. We had representatives from the local health organizations, and had a barbecue with members from all of our Recovery Learning Centers and staff. It was a beautiful day, and great to get together!
