Fostering a safe space for recovery


  • We appreciate your interest in our volunteer program.  Since the beginning South Shore Peer Recovery has depended on volunteers and we could not do it without your help, Thank You!
  •  Volunteers help us to staff the center by making sure the center is clean and set up for the day’s activities, which can include setting up chairs in our group meeting room; keeping brochures and information boards up to date and greeting guests to the center.
