CPC is currently seeking dedicated professionals to support a new federally funded Community Recovery & Safety Services (CRSS) program on a one-year term till end of September 2023 with a high possibility of year two/continuation.

This program offers case management, mental health screenings, health and wellness-related trainings, psycho-educational workshops, individual counseling, group support services, and more.
