Art & Creative Expression

Painting, crafting and other forms of creating art has proven to bring many benefits to our mental, emotional and physical health. Relief from overwhelming emotions, trauma, and the stresses of everyday life as well as a more peaceful inner sense of being are a few of the experiences gained through creative expression.

We want to offer you the tools to tell your story. Whether that is through a personal journal or a sketchbook, with yarn or canvas, jewelry-making or crafting, we want to allow you to express yourself. We offer free-to-use supplies for many different activities, including:

  • Painting
  • Drawing
  • Jewelry Making
  • Crochet
  • Puzzles
  • Crafts
  • Writing

If there is a particular craft or activity you’d like to do that we don’t have supplies for, we will do our best to get them. Our Art Studio is open M-F 9:30-3:00.

Peer Support Groups


River City Advocacy’s Peer Support groups are for anyone who needs emotional support. Whether you are experiencing a mental health concern, a chronic illness, a personal loss, or even a personal victory you want to share, RCA is a place for you.

Our support groups are facilitated by a Certified Peer Specialist or other staff member but are primarily driven by discussion among peers who share their stories of resilience and offer hope and support for one another.
