NEW Program: Young Adults Drop In + Games Night

Every Monday afternoon, a lively group of young adults gathers at Forward House for engaging activities and fun community outings. Together, we navigate the world of anxiety, depression and other mental health challenges through inclusive conversation and companionship. We've recently added Games Night on Friday evenings as another opportunity for laughter and community building - join us! 

Volunteer Opportunities  

At Forward House there are so many ways to give back. Our volunteers provide a range of supports including preparation of home-style meals, art instruction, transportation, Board engagement, and much more! With just a few hours a week, you can provide life-changing opportunities to people who need your support.
