Continuum Care Center (CCC) is a grassroots culturally specific non-profit Recovery Community Organization (RCO) led by members of the recovery community. We provide resources to promote long-term recovery and improve the quality of life while building recovery capital.
At CCC, we work with other community service providers and organizations to help individuals navigate barriers to recovery. We provide culturally appropriate peer support services and resources to the most vulnerable population. These non-clinical services support those individuals in homeless shelters, camps, and treatment centers and those seeking support when dealing with substance use disorders.
