MAYFEST

MAYFEST

The 39th Annual MAYFEST may be a September-Fest

 

Originally founded in 1950 as the Skidrow Alcoholic Center,  recenter® is proud to celebrate its 70  years of service, helping our fellow Houstonians suffering with the challenges of chemical dependency – one day at a time.

Because of the space required to construct the Dailey building, Mayfest may become September-fest this year.  We are working to find a nearby location.  Check back for updated information.
