Capital Recovery Center (CRC), winner of the 2013 Governor’s Employer Award for Small Non-Profits is opening its doors to the general public on Friday, December 6 from 1pm to 4pm. Along with Heck, Thurston County Commissioner Karen Valenzuela, and Olympia Mayor Stephen Buxbaum are also slated to attend.
Attendees will receive a tour of the new facility, hear all about the groundbreaking Peer Counseling services, as well as receive an introduction to CRC’s other programs, including PATH, a program that assists individuals recovering from mental health issues who are also experiencing housing instability, as well as the Downtown Ambassador Program which provides litter removal, graffiti abatement, outreach, and hospitality in the Downtown core.
Executive Director Heather Moore is excited about this chance to welcome the community in, “Anytime you get to open your doors and invite folks in to see what you do, it is a fantastic opportunity to educate people about the realities of mental health challenges and the people who face them. For me, it’s also an opportunity to show off our brilliant staff, interns, and volunteers who combine forces everyday to make this organization what it is.”
Moore added that she looks forward to more opportunities to plug CRC into the local community, and hopes to see a lot of neighbors and community members at the event.
