Our Programs & Communities
The Wildflower Alliance (formerly Western Mass Recovery Learning Community (RLC)) creates conditions that support healing and growth for individuals and the community as a whole through learning opportunities, advocacy, peer-to-peer support and the development of regional and national networks.
Offerings include four resource centers, a number of support groups (Hearing Voices, Alternatives to Suicide, etc.), access to alternative healing practices (yoga, acupuncture, etc.), and a variety of trainings, workshops, and consultation for providers, people in peer roles, individuals seeking support and the broader community.
The Support Network supports parents or caregivers who have children, adolescents, and transition age youth effectively navigate through the various systems of care and become strong and successful advocates for their children.
The Network’s goal is to support the unique strengths, insights and skills of families so they may best achieve their individual goals. We do this by offering individual or group support, information on special education and other resources, opportunity to attend trainings and conferences or to participate in child serving agency advisory forums, and also access to an extensive lending library.
The RECOVER Project is a safe, welcoming community that supports recovery from drug and alcohol addiction by sharing the wisdom of our lived experience and strengthens our community through full participation.
We create resource connections and advocate to overcome barriers while promoting the reality that recovery is possible for all. RP members both give and receive support through a variety of educational, volunteer, and social activities that help people overcome emotional and social isolation, develop skills and strengths, build leadership capacity, and prevent relapse.
The People’s Medicine Project is a small but committed group of alternative health practitioners, gardeners, social justice advocates, and community members who believe that all people have a right to wellness and empowered connection to their health.
We believe that our region’s abundant wellness-promoting offerings: (organic farms, food coops, alternative health practitioners, education and health-related workshops, etc.) should be available to all people, not just to those with privilege.
The Recovery Center of HOPE (formerly the Ware Regional Recovery Center) is a new organization run by and for people in recovery (from alcohol, drugs, and any other addiction), their families, loved ones, and those who are supporters (allies) of recovery.
Community Members at RCH reach our goals through a strengths-based approach and a community-based approach. We build on the positive skills of individuals and organizational supporters to grow, and we actively seek out ways to add value to our communities.
