Recovery Options Made Easy (ROME) has cut the ribbon on the Kirsten Vincent Respite & Recovery Center. The organization has repurposed the former St. John Baptist Hospice at 111 Maple St in the Fruit Belt region of East Buffalo. The center provides mental health crisis intervention alternatives to hospitalization. Buffalo News reporter Jon Harris visited the center to learn more. The collaboration between ROME, Spectrum Health and Human Services and WNY Independent Living’s Peer Connection acts as a hospital diversion space in the community.
The Magellan Group has worked with ROME for five years in building capacity and supporting business development.
