Welcome to RIPPLE!
We believe the key to recovery innovations is harnessing our voices, insights, and leadership, and those of our fellow service recipients, to inform and implement change in Mental Health and Addiction Services.
RIPPLE has two primary goals: first, to bring service recipients and providers together in a way that centers focus on the voices of our peers in recovery, improves communication, and fosters a true spirit of partnership; second, to provide and promote consumer-crafted education, resources and information in the ever-changing landscape of the Mental Health and Addiction Services System.
Ripple is hosting a late night peer support group on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays from 10:00 PM to Midnight. These meetings are offered on the Zoom platform and open to anyone who would like to attend.
This service is currently a pilot program, data is being collected, and we are looking forward to a point in the future where this group has the option to meet every night of the year including holidays.
After a long journey we are proud to announce that
Recovery Innovations for Pursuing Peer Leadership and Empowerment
is now officially recognized as a charitable organization under the Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(3).
Ripple was legally incorporated in 2020 and we moved forward with our non profit application to the IRS. This was submitted on July 15th, 2020. We received a letter from the Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service dated August 20th 2020. It was delivered to us via the U.S. Postal service on September 4th, 2020. It was at that time we learned our application had been approved. We also learned that the IRS backdated the effective date of exemption to April 3rd, 2020 which was when the incorporation was taking place.
