Latest Center Updates

Although we know it’s been slow going, we’re hopeful that we’ll make some progress with getting the RLC’s Greenfield Center back to fully usable early this New Year. We’re working hard, and in the mean time check out our calendar and all the groups and events still happening almost every day of the week!

The construction is almost done! Our group meeting room is almost ready for full use, the shower is almost ready for its first… shower, and we’re even almost done painting (well, the main rooms)! It’s taken us way longer to get to this point then we’d hoped, but we’re so excited to see the space really taking shape. Come check it out if you haven’t already, at 235 Chestnut Street.
Our Pittsfield Center closed its doors at the start of November. However, we’re eager to get to the re-visioning process and figure out our next chapter in the Berkshires.

We’re pleased to announce that Natan Cohen (Greenfield Community Coordinator, Advocate at Afiya and RLC team member for the last couple of years) has been hired as County Coordinator, and will be supporting our re-envisioning process in Pittsfield.

As some may have heard, we are also planning a move for our Holyoke Center. Although there’s much sentimental attachment to the space we are in now (it was, after all, our very first center to open back in 2007), it’s just not as usable as it used to be. The elevator frequently doesn’t work, we’ve had problems with the front door access, and that along with some other developments have just led to the space we’re in not getting used as much as we’d like. Initially, we’d been thinking we’d try to move over the winter, but things are just a bit too chaotic right now, so we’re aiming for the summer. We’ll be looking for a space that is (ideally) a store front with easier access and hopefully more flexible space! Let us know if you have ideas about what you’d like the new space to look like or offer.
