Current Peer Groups

Pacific Center offers ongoing, drop-in, peer-facilitated groups covering a range of topics and issues important to our communities.  These groups provide connection, support, information, and enjoyment.  Peer groups are volunteer-led and are not therapy groups. 

A majority (not all) of our peer groups are now meeting virtually, most on Zoom.  Some groups have increases their frequency!  Please us the specific groups email to see if they are meeting and to get a link to join.  If you have more questions, contact the program manager at


Suggested donations for peer group attendees is $5 to $20 per group meeting.  No one is turned away for lack of funds.  We are happy to accept donations for our peer group programs through our website, mail, or via Text to Donate.
