What is CAVE?
In 2003 the Center for Advocacy, Voice, and Empowerment (CAVE) started to provide an outlet for individuals who are recipients of mental health services to make friends and build connections. As the program has grown and changed, the central mission of providing a welcoming place to build community has not wavered. CAVE is a drop in time where individuals can socialize, engage in activities, share a meal, or learn something new. CAVE offers a warm and comfortable space where those with a shared experience of utilizing mental health services for recovery can connect with their peers. CAVE isn't a place where individuals receive services, it's a place of mutual support and help- in good times and difficult times, in humor and in confidence. The relationships built through CAVE extend beyond the structured hours. CAVE members reach out and meet up other times too.

CAVE provides a welcoming and supportive environment for its members. We value hope, self-efficacy, resiliency, and support. CAVE is a nonjudgmental space where individuals can grow, learn, and build natural supports.
