Hours of Operation:

We are open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

At our R.O.S.S. Recovery Community Centers, individuals come and go as they like and choose to either attend a support group, engage in social activities, fill out online job applications, or help to build their resume. R.O.S.S. is a safe, supportive, and fun environment for the people we serve to be in. If someone doesn’t have a place to go for the holidays or to watch a game they can, come to R.O.S.S. and share a meal.
