Recovery Community Center

Inside the Recovery Community Center

  Our recovery Community Center (RCC), located at 112 N Elmwood Ave  has entered its second year. The RCC provides a large dining/meeting area for up to 200 people, as well as recovery meetings and events Monday through Saturday evening. The facility is peer run, meaning the entire staff is in long term recovery, and understand the needs and wants of everyone who enters the doors seeking help.
All of us here at Healing House would love to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone who has devoted their time, donations and all around support in making the RCC a reality. Your blessing has allowed us to help hundreds of people so far, with so many more to come!

Family Reunification
A very important step for many people in recovery is the healing and renewing of relationships within their family.  The RCC provides the Family Reunification room to meet these needs. It is a safe, comfortable and private area for supervised and unsupervised visits between parents and their children.

Computer Lab

Eli Davis, our Employment Specialist, leads a daily computer lab for participants to job search, create resumes, create emails for jobs, and learn basic computer skills to help them find employment and raise their recovery up to the next step of self sufficiency.

State of the Art Kitchen
Our food and beverage director/executive chef, Lee Matheson, and Lisa Merlo, are seen here preparing a wonderful dinner for our participants. They feed anywhere up to 200 people a night, and provide lunch for the RCC everyday.

Main Hall
The main area of the RCC, which holds up to 200 people, is where we dine and hold recovery meetings every night. We also offer recovery dances, holiday parties, and special recovery birthday celebrations.

The Recovery Community Center has a resource department, with up-to-date recovery resources gathered from all across Missouri, Kansas and beyond. Anyone in the community is welcome to drop in for one-on-one peer counseling, as well as acquire many resources as needed such as transitional living, treatment, detox, food pantries, medical/dental and much more.
If you, or anyone you know needs resources, please call our 24 hour hope line: 855-770-4673.

Each month we will introduce you to some of the amazing staff here at The Healing House
