We provide comprehensive on the job training programs for individuals in early recovery.

The Location

The River North Art District “where art is made” goes by the nickname of “RiNo” and has even adopted a rhino design for its official logo, so look for creative rhinos in art and signage all around the neighborhood! The district’s interesting blend of urban charm and unique industrial revival makes it a great destination for visitors. Historic warehouses and factories now house jazz bars, restaurants, brewpubs, art galleries, and working studios. RiNo boasts a diverse mix of creative businesses ranging from visual artists, designers and furniture makers, to creators of unique outdoor gear and small-batch coffee roasters. The art definitely extends beyond gallery walls in this neighborhood, with its colorful and innovative street art murals in alleys and on buildings around almost every corner! RiNo was also named by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 neighborhoods to visit in the U.S.
