  • SPEAK UP REACH OUT 10 minute stories WI

    09/19/2014 7:00PM - 9:00PM
    Come hear the stories of 6 adults as they describe their journeys to recovery. Take the mic and SPEAK UP if you are ready. Speaking Up to tell a story can be a step of courage and triumph for people in recovery. This Speaking Up is a time for us to recognize and honor the strengths and struggles of our loved ones, community members, and friends. Voices from our community will be respected as they tell their truths. Reaching Out for help takes the courage of individuals to admit that they cannot do it alone. Asking for help is not a natural activity but learned over time. To Reach Out for a brochure, phone number, or extended hand can be the first step in recovery. Reaching Out to give help requires a person to give up judgment, stereotyping, and unrealistic expectations. To provide support, the helper must join the people on their journey – not a step ahead and not a step behind. An extended hand will not be left hanging.

Arbor Place, tucked away in a small building in Menomonie since 1976, broke ground for a new, expanded facility in the Stout Tech Park in July.
