The BASS Peer Wellness Center
In 2014, AQCS dedicated our center in the name of a dear friend of ours, Kamau Bass. Kamau was not only a loving son, father, husband and friend but a TRUE warrior for those living with and experiencing mental illness and substance abuse.
The Bass Peer and Wellness Center is a drop-in wellness, recovery, and support center. Operational since July 2014, our mission is to provide a safe place where individuals receive respect, encouragement, and hope that supports and strengthens their recovery in mental health, addictions, and trauma.
We offer many peer-led support groups daily. These include our mental health, alcohol and other drugs, trauma-informed support groups, and more. The Bass Peer and Wellness center hosts a wide variety of services, including one-on-on WHAM (Whole Health and Wellness), Peer Support life skills, recreational activities, computer lab, media center, meditation center and other programs.
