Amistad Network at Large Amistad came to life in 1982, begun by families of adults with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI). These families knew that what their loved ones really needed was something not provided by other agencies -- a safe place to spend their abundant free time where they would be treated respectfully and where they could engage in useful activities. Amistad has grown over the years, however we remain committed to the original vision. We are a community where everyone is always welcome on a first name basis without regard to diagnosis and where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. We do the little things -- remember birthdays, celebrate accomplishments, take pictures, and memorialize members when they pass. We became a recognized 501(c)(3) corporation in 1996. Originally known as a social club, in 2001 the members voted to describe themselves as a Peer Support and Recovery Center. This name change reflects the awareness that Amistad has grown into a community of people committed to health, mutual support and recovery. In the past few years Amistad has become a leader in developing services that are organized and delivered by peers. We now operate three individual programs -- the original Peer Support and Recovery Center in Portland, we have expanded to include a Peer Support program in the Emergency Room at Maine Medical Center, and established a Peer Support Program inside Riverview Psychiatric Center.

Campesinos Sin Fronteras Network at Large Campesinos Sin Fronteras has been in existence since 1997 and officially became a non-profit 501c3 organization in 1999. CSF’s client population consists primarily of migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families, but includes many other low-income Hispanics who live along the US-Mexico border in Yuma County, Arizona. CSF provides services to a minimum of 10,000 people on an annual basis. Campesinos Sin Fronteras was founded by a group of farmworker and ex-farmworker community leaders who were concerned about the lack of health and social services and advocacy for the farmworker population. The idea behind the organization was to create a community-wide partnership between farmworkers and community leaders representing local organizations, local government, churches, and civic groups. CSF has since evolved into an organization with multiple health and housing programs that utilizes a grassroots Promotora Model to reach its clients in a linguistically and culturally appropriate way. The organization currently serves Yuma and the rural Arizona communities of Somerton, Gadsden, San Luis, Wellton, Dateland, and surrounding Colonias. CSF seeks to empower our community by promoting health, facilitating access to health services, and helping our clients to attain safe and affordable housing. CSF’s youth services focus on substance abuse prevention, leadership skills, and preparing young people for academic success. Visit Site P.O. Box 423

S.H.A.R.E. Sharing Hope, Acceptance, Resilience and Experience. A burns peer support program - NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation Network at Large S.H.A.R.E. (Sharing Hope, Acceptance, Resilience and Experience), is a formalised peer support program for patients with a burn injury who are inpatients or outpatients at one of three New South Wales (NSW) Health sites. The program is an initiative of, and coordinated by, the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI). Burn survivors are assessed via a formalised recruitment, screening and training process before being deemed ‘emotionally ready’ to undertake the role of peer supporter. The burns patient is then peer matched with a burns survivor based on certain selection characteristics. S.H.A.R.E. is championed by volunteers who are burn survivors, who share their story in an endeavour to improve patient outcomes. The engagement of burn survivors as Peer Support Volunteers offers patients a support system that is based on the fundamental premise of ‘shared experience’, something beyond what can be offered by the health professional. Whilst the volunteer and patient share the commonality of shared trauma, the group is otherwise diverse, hence the process of empowering patients in the selection of volunteers in nominating preferred characteristics such as age, gender, culture, and injury site.

Amistad Inc Network at Large Recovery. Relationships. Respect. Amistad came to life in 1982, begun by families of adults with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI). These families knew that what their loved ones really needed was something not provided by other agencies -- a safe place to spend their abundant free time where they would be treated respectfully and where they could engage in useful activities. In the past few years Amistad has become a leader in developing services that are organized and delivered by peers. We now operate three individual programs -- the original Peer Support and Recovery Center in Portland, we have expanded to include a Peer Support program in the Emergency Room at Maine Medical Center, and established a Peer Support Program inside Riverview Psychiatric Center.

Support is available for persons diagnosed with cancer for the first time, for those with recurrence and metastasis.
