continued King always wanted to help others and enjoys working with people.
She’s earning a degree in mental health counseling and after she was hired this past July, she began setting up the office and looking for peers to fill the positions.
“The peer-based program is kind of new, and we are all learning and gathering information along the way.”
Impeerium holds social events and classes to provide opportunities for peers to get to know each other and start forming a network.
One goal is to set up satellite locations in surrounding communities to provide services to individuals who might have difficulty making it in to Plattsburgh.
“We are still new, but my hope is different events will bring in more people,” King said. “I think of this as a place anyone would walk into and feel comfortable.”
