Chicago Recovering Communities Coalition (CRCC) is a nonprofit Recovery Community Organization and our mission is to provide evidence-based peer recovery support services to individuals seeking recovery from alcohol, drugs and mental illness. We are a peer-driven and peer- led and a member of Faces & Voices Association of Recovery Community Organizations (ARCO). CRCC serves the Chicago metropolitan area in northeastern Illinois, including Chicago and its surrounding suburbs.
CRCC’s Independent Living Program aims to help individuals living in the Austin area to establish a substance free and independent life by providing peer recovery support services, job training and/or placement, life skills development, and sober social-recreational activities. Individuals can participate in a 4-week intensive training to obtain employment in hospitals, restaurants and other organizations or to become self-employed.
RSS offers life skills and recovery education classes to recovering individuals who have a history of substance use disorder in the state of Illinois that need extra support to sustain their recovery. We also provide individual personalized sessions to help clients and their families remove barriers to recovery. Join Our Weekly Classes Monday - Thursday 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM.
CRCC focuses on connecting youth with services and resources to enhance their support network and build skills. We also provide services to support the entire family independent of the youth. Services such as leadership classes, employment, youth development, early education, mentoring and wellness programming are available. Join Our Bi-Monthly Youth Training & Fun Days 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM.
Please join us our Recovery Workforce Network! The goals of this Task Force are to establish and enhance employment-based recovery support services and address and remove barriers that bar individuals in recovery from gainful employment and increase access to workforce activities for the recovery community.
