Don’t they look “mmm mmm good”?!
Rachel explaining the Marcus Alert Community Input Survey to No Limits members. This survey is very important in assisting in the development of a behavioral health crisis system in Virginia. We encourage anyone who has input on behavioral health crisis services in their community to complete this survey using the following link:

During Virtual No Limits this week we enjoyed a nutrition lesson with Tonya from the Virginia Cooperative Extension’s SNAP-Ed Program. Zel says “it was entertaining!”
We caught Emma off guard!
No Limits’ Case Coordinator, Kyle, got to visit with Steve this week. We are so glad Kyle was able to visit with you Steve! We miss you!

Zel does a fantastic job of caring for our hens (with help from friends too!)
Spring WILL come! It’s already peeping through in our gardens.
Working on cards for community outreach. These cards are very important to our members who have been shut-in during the pandemic.
It’s starting to get a little crowded as folks return to No Limits so we had to do a little redecorating! Yeah, let’s put the sewing machines in Rachel’s office!
Thanks CL and Zel for doing the heavy lifting! Don’t worry, that is a stuffed animal and not a real cat! It was a gift from our friend Terrance.
CL took a rest after all that work!
Men at work. Wait until Emma sees her office on Monday! We need some records (old school vinyl) for the record player Kyle donated!
Angela and David grabbing some coffee before the day gets started.
If you have been to No Limits in the last 8 years or so, you may be familiar with our inflatable dinosaur. He moves around, but as of today he’s back in Rachel’s office, guarding the sewing machines!
