LINC Center focuses on personal wholeness, it is a community where individuals experiencing emotional distress (sometimes referred to as mental illness, substance abuse, poverty, and other life challenges) can actively pursue their hopes, goals, dreams according to their values.
The LINC Community is for anyone to become empowered, make contributions, be creative, and make social connections. Our supports include; daily meals, information access (telephonic, digital, print) including for housing and employment, connection to community resources and healthcare, evidence based 12 step groups (Daily Reflections every Tuesday and Thursday at 10am and Narcotics Anonymous 5:30pm), evidence based wellness groups (Pathways to Recovery), weekly arts (visual art, writing, music) group experiences, information about our local and state’s political process and opportunity for self-advocacy in government, collaboration with Literacy Volunteers, and many more. While LINC offers services at the LINC Center, we also interact in the community via our garden on Glenridge Drive, attending public hearings important to the LINC community, our support of the Warming Center, involvement in art exhibits, etc. While LINC has three paid staff, we also utilize the tremendous skills, knowledge and resource of our community members to accomplish our goals.
We believe we can make meaningful changes in our lives to aid in our journey for living well. We are a grass roots movement where community chooses our Centers path and direction. We invite you to visit and contribute to a community that is building a brighter tomorrow, buy building a community of hope and healing today.
