What we’re about
To help those less fortunate cope with the various mental and emotional issues which may have arisen as a result of the pressures associated with covid-19 and other issues, we present to our local residents of Springfield Massachusetts, our Socially safe Horizons Anonymous Peer support program.
Program members will pay a donation of $20 a month for which they will be able to attend all relevant peer run therapy programs, a variety of social activities including but not limited to going on hikes, skiing, fishing, boating, swimming, visiting museums, a variety of day trips, picnics, dinner parties, and a whole host of other group and individual oriented activities. Each group is run by the individuals within it. This means if there's something that you've always wanted to do, and you're a member, we can do it. Even if it's only an individual who wants to do a specific activity or go to a specific event, we will still engage in the activity.
Right now the program is only open to residents of Springfield Massachusetts and the surrounding cities and towns. But we are expanding. We will be meeting at our rented Humbert Street address in Springfield Massachusetts several times a week as time allows.
It is our sincere hope that participants will find the program a breath of fresh air in these troubling times.
All of the activities will include transportation to and from meetings, transportation to and from activities, and all meals and snacks will be included as well.
The program is open to everyone over the age of 18. We are working on a program for young people but it has not yet been set up.
We're excited to invite those from the LGBTQ (etc.) communities, & those with sexual orientations mainstream society has chosen to marginalize through criminal & civil remedies laws & regulations. Groups meet privately based on commonalities. No one will be turned away!
If you or someone you know would be interested please contact us. We can answer all of your questions and get you signed up immediately.
Due to the physical location of the residence on Humbert Street, we will have to insist upon picking you up bringing you to the meetings and then bringing you back home as there is no parking. It's a residential neighborhood with regular houses.
