The Wellness and Recovery Center (WRC)

Winner of the Toledo Community Foundation’s 2019 Nonprofit Innovation Award

In mental health services, trust and compatibility are some of the most important factors in building a thriving client and professional relationship. The Wellness and Recovery Center was created to provide a community resource for people experiencing life’s stresses, so they may enjoy a better quality of life, learn different ways to cope with adversity, and reduce the public cost of behavioral health crisis care for all community members. This service is provided at no cost to the guest.

During a complete stay, we focus on different paths to recovery by providing:

  • Exploration of New Coping Skills
  • Learning Various Relaxation Techniques
  • Access to the Arts
  • Wellness and Recovery Action Planning

“Evidence-based research shows that Peer Operated Respite Services reduce the need for inpatient treatment or emergency room visits due to emotional distress by 70%. “


Peer Support encompasses a wide range of activities such as:

  • Advocating for People in Mental Health Recovery
  • Sharing Resources
  • Building Skills
  • Building Relationships
  • Leading Recovery Groups
