Our doors are open.
Whatever you’re going through, we offer a safe place to build friendships and find support. Our new, permanent home is the CRP space on the first floor of the Student Health and Wellness building at 550 Brandon Ave. Stop in for coffee, get your PlayStation on, or just hang out between classes. Join us weekly for Hoos in Recovery (HIR) meetings — casual check-ins with recovery-related discussion. Come as you are: No RSVP needed.
Learn more about where to find us, HIR meeting times, and events.
Our space is safe.
Come for the free food; stay for the friendships. Join a community of support that values where you are on the journey—and keeps your information confidential. Share as much or as little as you’d like. Know that your story is safe with us.
Join us every Wednesday at 6 pm in the CRP space on Brandon Ave
