The Lotus Room, In Memory of Jim Gouveia
In memory of our Board Member, Jim Gouveia, and based on his innovative vision, we created the Lotus Room—a confidential space where our guests can participate in culturally relevant, inclusive counseling and support services that are tailored to the specific access and equity needs of homeless and low-income individuals.
For many of the folks we serve, traditional models of counseling can be deeply inequitable and do not suit their unique needs and circumstances. For example, making appointments scheduled far in advance and waiting months to see a professional miss the mark if someone has no or unreliable transportation, an unpredictable life schedule, and more acute mental health needs. Costs for conventional care and medication are out of reach for most of our guests. Current resources in the region cannot meet the massive demand for help and explicit needs of people, many with mental disabilities, living in extreme poverty.
With an incredible lift from our donors and champions, the Lotus Room is now up and running at CDDC! Free counseling sessions and other direct support services in the Lotus Room help people improve quality of life, begin to heal trauma and daily stress, and overcome barriers that keep them from obtaining or maintaining housing, employment, relationships, or other elements of healthy, stable lives.
We offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to everyone who contributed to this project, and especially to Chareane Wimbly-Gouveia and the Buddhists Responding group from Sangha Jewel Zen Center for guidance and fundraising efforts, as well as Ben and Melody Slothower with L&S Builders, Inc. for their amazing, on-the-ground efforts to make the Lotus Room a reality.
