Caring

About Us

One Shared Spirit 501c(3) was established March, 16th of 2021 with the goal of helping those in need who are either in or seeking recovery from substance use disorders. Studies have proven the benefits of the holistic approach to recovery, and we started OSS with the intention and determination to bring that approach to the Barnstable County community along with the lived-experience of our staff. We started small, in the comfort of our director's home, and now an office space in Mashpee and we are growing every single day. As we receive funding/donations we will be adding more groups such as journaling groups, arts/crafts groups, and even therapy animal days.
We are a small group with big dreams to help the Barnstable County community and be there for anyone who needs us.
