CONNECTING TO SUPPORT
Linkage to Care Peer Support connects people seeking recovery with peers who understand their situation. Get the best support from people who have been successful in their own recovery journey.
WHAT IS A PEER?
Peers are our recovery outreach specialists. They have experienced many, if not all of the situations that we assist with including past incarceration, homelessness, and addiction. They are familiar with the barriers that keep people from the help they need and are in a unique situation to be able to provide help and empathy.
WHY IT WORKS
Connecting with someone who has been there provides a unique opportunity for support. Our peers are able to give support and offer recovery resources without judgement to help their clients achieve their self-directed goals.
