Stories of Recovery 

For over forty years, Compeer Rochester has employed the power of friendship to improve the lives of community members living with mental illness.

As you’ll see from this collection of stories, these Compeer friendships have buoyed not only the lives of our clients– they have profoundly benefited the lives of our volunteers as well.
