Current COVID-19 Status

The Hope Center is currently closed due to concern about COVID-19.

Here are groups offered by the Hope Center, open to all peers:


1pm: Creative Writing – Join us to spend time together responding to several fun writing prompts and sharing with the group – all skill levels welcome!

2pm: Recovery is Real – What does recovery “look like” to you? How do we works towards recovery day-to-day? In this group we will discuss these questions and more.


1pm: Lunch Chat– Enjoy a lunchtime discussion about anything that’s going on with you, chat about interesting topics, and give and receive support.

2pm: Brain Games and Activities – This is a time to explore riddles, brain teasers, “getting to know you” questions, and all kinds of fun virtual activities.


1pm: Navigating Relationships – Join us as we explore how to navigate all the different kinds of relationships. Give and receive support while discussing healthy relationship skills.

2pm: Arts and Music – Try out creative “drawing prompts” while listening to a playlist of tunes that people who attend will select – all skill levels welcome!
