Local residents who are interested in establishing a multi-purpose rehabilitation and wellness center in Moab are invited to meet with representatives from California-based Victory Outreach, on March 31 at 6:30 p.m. at River of Life Christian Fellowship, 2651 Arroyo Rd.

Victory Outreach has 47 years of experience in the field and “specializes in reaching those who are hurting,” according to a news release from a local group that has been working to establish the center.

The goal of the center is to provide services to those who have alcohol or drug addictions, depression, are homeless, have been victims of abuse or are dealing with other related issues “which compromise the integrity of life,” according to the news release.

The project is now in the “fact-finding” stage and various members of the community have been gathering weekly to discuss the issue, according to the news release. Anyone who is interested in helping establish the center, and those who would like more information are invited to attend the discussion.
