THE STRONGHOLD: A CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE PEER SUPPORT PROGRAM
Led by volunteer advocates and grassroot efforts, The Stronghold: A Culturally Responsive Peer Support Program has been in development since 2019. The Stronghold members are enrolled and/or descendants of a federally recognized tribe. Each of our members are trained Peer Wellness Specialists. We offer culturally relevant and responsive peer support services for individuals residing within Klamath County. The Stronghold is a 501©3 non-profit organization, which began providing services in July 2020. The Stronghold is a peer-run organization, meaning that the majority of the Board of Directors and leadership positions be composed of individuals who self-identify as an individual living a life of mental health, an addiction in recovery or both.
To create a culturally responsive peer support model, which provides culturally relevant healing practices. These practices are led by individuals who offer their shared lived experiences and are enrolled members or descendants of a federally recognized tribe.
The Stronghold is working in partnership with Great Spirit Native American Fellowship United Methodist Church to provide two transitional living spaces.
The red patronage, as seen in this photo, provides transitional women's housing.
The church will provide a transitional living space for men. Our program will be a low barrier of entry program, which will provide a transitional living space for any individual in need.
