Join us for our first ever citywide virtual symposium!
The recent events these past several months have greatly disrupted our lives and challenged us in many ways, and have once again placed a spotlight on issues around racism, racial inequity, and social justice. The Compassionate Community Subcommittee continues to work together to ensure that we can provide our #RCcommUNITY a safe space for all voices to be acknowledged and heard.

We are excited to invite you to our first ever Compassionate Community Symposium on Thursday, November 12th from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm. Together, we hope to identify strategies and action plans that will help foster healing and unity in Rancho Cucamonga.

For inquiries, email or call (909) 774-2043.

We are here for you at our Monthly RC Community Check-ins
As a response to the need of more consistent mental health support groups in Rancho Cucamonga, Healthy RC partnered with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Pomona Valley to provide virtual community conversations called Community Check-ins. We encourage people to just grab a cup of tea and get comfortable at home, while logging on the Community Check-in safe space to share what’s on your mind.

Check-ins are scheduled on the first Monday of every month from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. The purpose of this group is to share, listen, collaborate and learn from your fellow community members. NAMI Executive Director James Curtis facilitates and guides the conversation so that people can find the right tools, resources, and strategies to practice self-care and wellness.
