We are so excited and have been working hard the Nichols Center. I wanted to give you an update on how your donations and support are making a huge impact for Douglas County Families.
We have successfully launched our Guardians Group supporting Veterans and First Responders. It is held the 4th Wednesday of every month at 6pm.
Through a partnership with Breath of Life Counseling we are offering Life Coach and Academic Coaching to Middle and Highschool Students on Wednesday evenings from 5pm-7pm. Please contact us for more information.
We have moved our Art Journaling class to Mondays from 5pm-7pm to be able to offer this weekly!
Our NAMI peer facilitators are attending a mentoring group on Sundays to prepare for their Peer Connections training.
Through the Intervene Challenge program we provided free Suicide Intervention Training to Mental Health and Veterans Court participants.
Through individual donations we have been able to provide a family phone plan, mental health medications, family pumpkins and costumes to families in recovery.
And we are still hosting our regular weekly classes!
Wow! What an amazing month October has been! We are so grateful for your generosity and faithfulness to continue to be a part of our Family.
We are excited to invite you to participate in our biannual Charity Softball Tournament! We host this tournament in memory of Kirk Nichols #73 who loved his family, fixing cars, and softball! Kirk died far too young from an accidental overdose. At the time families with mental health or addiction disorders were not treated with dignity. Our family created the Nichols Center as a way to connect with other family through healing and hope. We would love to have you come out and enjoy this day with us. You can register on the website under events.
Nichols Center Welcomes Margo
Susie has worked tirelessly to keep the living gift shop thriving with life. As the cooler weather sets in we are turning our focus to indoor plants. To really make the plant room magical we have welcomed a Russian Tortoise to our family. Her name is Margo and she is quite the character. She is shy and a bit anxiety prone at times so she fits right in. She loves green bell peppers and tomatoes. You are very welcome to come visit her on Saturdays during the plant shop hours! 10am-2pm
