Volleyball Game in the Park

Rena B, Bimini, Stepping Stones, Mariposa, Royal Palms, Omni Center, PCADD, River Community Residential, River Covina/Wellness and Mid Valley Outpatient attended this fun event at Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park. The residents appeared to be more engaged. They facilitated volleyball teams, mixed and mingled with participants from different programs, went hiking, and visited the beach in the park. Staff served lunch for the participants, which consisted of sandwiches, spinach, potato salad, cheese, baked potato chips, mixed fresh fruit, watermelon slices, pineapple slices, and water. It was amazing to see the participants come together, excitedly laughing and engaged in the activities. Not one person was left behind.

Korean Cultural Celebration

Touchstone hosted a Cultural Awareness presentation and shared about the history and culture of Korea. We learned about the uniqueness of the Korean culture and their ideology when it comes to addressing addiction and mental health. The residents and those who attended the event were treated to a traditional Korean dishes, such as kalbi and japchae, for lunch. The residents and the staff also learned how to spell their names in Korean and make word art out of fans.

We hope to see you at our next event!

Juneteenth

Mariposa staff and residents celebrated Juneteenth. Residents filled their poster boards with quotes, pictures, and history. We learned that the significance of Juneteenth is the emancipation of the last remaining enslaved people in the United States. Juneteenth is also called Freedom Day or Emancipation Day. After the presentation, we enjoyed a delicious dinner that included fried chicken, baked macaroni, potato salad, and pork beans. To some of our residents, it was their first time celebrating Juneteenth.  

Mexican American Culture

Omni Center hosted a Cultural Awareness presentation and shared about the history and culture of Mexico. Stepping Stones, Mid-Valley and River Community were in attendance and all enjoyed a traditional dish, along with candy and sweet bread.

We hope to see you at our next event!

Special Mother's Day Breakfast at Mariposa

This year, a Mother’s Day Breakfast was prepared for the women at Mariposa Recovery Home by Mariposa Staff. The women woke up to a beautiful display of Mother’s Day décor and the smell of breakfast being made. Staff members at Mariposa are especially considerate of this day, because most of the Mariposa residents are women who are fighting to get their children back, and/or they are estranged from their children and may have no chance of having them back in their lives at this time. These women are mothers and should definitely be celebrated, as we know that only the disease of addiction can interfere with the bond between a mother and her child. The Mariposa Staff Members are very grateful to be able to do something special for these residents, to start off their Mother’s Day morning in a positive way.
