November 19th 6:30pm

Paul Ottenstein and Pat Pesa from HEAP (Homeless Empowerment Advisory Project) and Friends of Metro Boston will be speaking on the programs of both HEAP and the Friends of Metro Boston. 

HEAP was modeled after The Ruby Rogers Center as a user-run program to advocate for people in DMH homeless programs. It holds its meetings at the Lindemann Inn, and in connection with Friends of Metro Boston offers many activities for people with lived experience.

The Friends of Metro Boston enriches the lives of young people recovering from psychiatric conditions. It is a Vinfen program funded by a contract with the Department of Mental Health (DMH) that provides opportunities for young adults with psychiatric conditions to participate in activities in the community with young adults who do not have psychiatric conditions.

December 17 6:30pm

Research from the Center of Excellence at MGH
Speakers: Valeria Chambers, Anne Whitman, and Sandra Whitney-Sarles.
