Fall Softball Tournament & Updates
We are excited to welcome new and returning teams for our 9th annual fall Knocking Addiction Out of the Park Sunday, Oct 23rd. Every year we share memories and celebrate a new championship winning team. This year our goal is to bring awareness for recovery and wellness and you can help!
Through the Nichols Center we have been able to help families heal from the trauma of substance use and overdose. In 2022 we have worked to build a NAMI affiliate for Douglas County. We have launched a Crisis Intervention Team collaborative to identify gaps and support services for Mental Health in our community.
Our Guardian's Project has served the local first responders through a monthly appreciation breakfast. On the first Monday of every month, we prepare a hot meal to deliver to each fire station, the police department, and the sheriff's department. Through this initiative we have been able to share mental health resources with our first responders.
We have hosted free Suicide Intervention Training for the Douglas County Fire Department and more than 80 members of our community. We continue this project through 2023 until every first responder has had the opportunity to receive the Intervene Challenge training.
Nana's Plant shop continues to share the therapeutic gifts of nature through the center and the gardens. On August 31st, we dedicated the Remembrance Garden in memory of Kirk Nichols. We are blessed the have families place names of their loved ones and light candles in remembrance.
Through participating in this charity softball tournament you help us continue our mission to help families heal. We would love to have you join our event and support this cause. We are looking for individuals to donate raffle items or sponsor teams. If you would like to support our efforts please donate below.
