Spring 2018 Meetings

     Wednesdays        (5:30-6:30pm)

Free food and a community that "gets it"!

Come meet and hang out with other Hoos in recovery.  No RSVP needed.  Not sure what to expect?  It's very casual and low-key.  We spend some time with brief intros/checking in about how the week has gone.  Then check-in is followed by a recovery-related reading and discussion.  You can share as much or as little as you'd like, and you don't need to prepare anything in advance.

HiR House (506 Valley Road) - Free pizza and parking in the driveway!

Hope to see you there!

Pizza provided by the UVA Parents Fund
