We are a community where everyone is always welcome on a first-name basis without regard to diagnosis and where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

Amistad’s Mission

We help those with mental illness, substance use disorder, chronic homelessness, and related issues to recover and lead healthy lives.

We do this by fostering community among our members, by seeking to expand our peer services to reach more people in need, by advocating for more and better healthcare availability, and through our belief in the inherent potential of each individual and our respect for a meaningful consumer voice.
