- The Mission of WeCare is to provide culturally-sensitive and peer-driven care for individuals that have experienced mental health, substance use, or co-occurring issues. It is the goal of WeCare to help empower and build positive self-efficacy and self-determination into their journey of recovery.
WeCare is a peer run membership organization. At WeCare, we use our personal lived experience to help others on their path to recovery. We, as staff members, have over 60 years of sobriety combined.
We have dealt personally with mental health and substance use challenges. We have been hungry, homeless, institutionalized, incarcerated, and may have experienced trauma. Despite the odds, we have persevered and WE ARE evidence that recovery is possible.
It is because of this lived experience that we can relate to our members. We have been where they are; we have felt what they are feeling; WE CAN speak to them with understanding of their situation and with empathy.
WECARE is a very unique place. Please come visit with us to see who we are and what we are about. A member of our staff will meet with you immediately.
