Please Note: 4 community members can be in the space at a time for the purpose of using bathrooms, warming up, accessing a computer, and drying off. We are offering snacks, sandwiches, and other basic supplies as much as we are able, and prioritizing people who have no other safe space to be in and/or who are at risk of forced hospitalization or similar. We ask that people who do have a space to live in continue to stay home and make use of our on-line and phone supports.

Some Greenfield Center history
The Western Mass RLC moved into their first center space in July of 2011, having previously shared space next door with the Recover Project. This space was located on Federal Street near the heart of downtown Greenfield. The space offered access to peer support by phone and in person, access to a resource computer and a lending library, and a variety of workshops, community meetings and other activities. Above all else, it was intended to offer a safe space within which our community can come together, heal, share, support, learn from and strengthen one another.
For much of 2017 the RLC was without a Greenfield center due to a severe mold problem at the Federal Street location. In October of that year, a new space was found at the current 20 Chapman Street location. The new space provides a more open environment and a full kitchen for the community to share.
