You’re invited to the upcoming Houston Recovery Residence Network gathering on Friday, April 7.
Come learn and collaborate! The doors will open at 11:45am — the program will begin at noon and will conclude at 1:15pm. There is no cost to attend, lunch will be provided and dress is casual.
HRRN gatherings are typically exclusive to those who serve in a leadership role for a recovery residence; however, this gathering is open to the public.
We will be meeting in the Together For The City Training Center, 4701 Dickson Street, Houston, TX 77007, located on the Joplin Campus of St. Thomas High School (see map below). Enter the parking lot at the intersection of Shepherd Dr. and Dickson Street. Drive through the black gate that leads to a larger parking lot and volunteers and signs will guide the way from there. There will also be signs surrounding the campus to guide you (see example sign below). For additional assistance, please call Madison at 346-818-9427.
