How you helpOur sister organization, Uplift Thrift Shop, had to close due to COVID 19. If you would like to support the excellent support the we provide, please make a donation at https://kindest.com/general. Every little bit helps, we are $8,000 away from making our fundraising goals. All the services at On Our Own are free to those in need. If you are interested in volunteering to help around our Center with tasks such as helping to pick up food pantry donations, please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Jorie Baran at [email protected] Please help us make sure we continue to support the members and our community. Thank you!
About usOn Our Own began in 1990 when some mental health consumers met to discuss unmet needs in our area and to advocate for needed changes. Our services are always free, and our hearts are always open. If you find yourself in need of support, a place to lay your worries, a place to be understood, or just a place to sit with other folks in safety and comfort during a difficult time, we invite you to drop by. Our house is a place where members are understood, trusted, and valued. It is a place to go for support, and to provide support to others. Whatever the reason, On Our Own welcomes anyone who needs support. If you are seeking to work things out surrounded by those who are pursuing their own recovery paths, we’re here for you. If you are limited by finances, access, or find yourself “outside the system” in any way, we are here for you. Whoever you are, and whatever your specific issues are, we will do our utmost to give you what aid we can. The goal at On Our Own is not to “fix” anyone. We have thirty years of experience helping people who struggle with mental health challenges and addiction, and have been in similar places ourselves. But we do not believe that anyone is wise enough to dictate the course of anyone else’s recovery. Our goal, rather, is to empower people to understand where they are, where they have been, and to chart their own way forward.
