We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing recreational events that create healing spaces through various types of recreation, for individuals suffering or have suffered from trauma, mental health complications, and suicide. All events and projects benefit these individuals and this community directly by way of participation in our programs aimed to provide resources and a source of healing and recovery, and indirectly through partnerships with other nonprofits and charities related to the specific events and projects.
“Rec” can interchangeably or simultaneously stand for “Recovery” or “Recreation”. We are “Universal” in the fact that we aim to support everyone, regardless of their specific mental health complication, age, gender, ethnicity, or religion, and the fact that we provide events and projects for multiple forms of recreation.
OUR MISSION AND VISION
Outside the four walls of therapy and support group sessions lies a whole world out there we can use as a resource and supplement in our recovery, healing, and community. Sports, fitness, and recreation provide huge benefits to our mental health. Sharing our stories as a community provides awareness, empowerment, and confidence. Combining those can make a powerful impact on our mental health and overall wellness.
Together we can “Recover Through Recreation”.
