Some Reasons People Call Us







Some Ways We Help 
We talk about problems in individual, couple, family, and 
group therapy, so that they become better understood and possible solutions may be identified.

We can prescribe medications so that certain problems may 
become more manageable.

doctors, counselors, social workers and

The Living Room
Wednesday afternoons, 1:00 - 6:00
For more information, call 325-1180, ext 114.

You’re Invited to The Living Room. Our peer support program, where volunteers offer coffee, tea, and a safe place to heal and grow. In The Living Room, men and women with real life problems create a nonjudgmental space in which people can share their struggles, offer encouragement, and exchange coping strategies. Folks bring problems ranging from parenting dilemmas to pain from past abuse, to living with a diagnosable mental illness.

In the Living Room, relationships are built on mutuality, shared power, and respect.


Wesley's Mothers
Wesley's Mothers Peer Support Group
Tuesday afternoons, 1:00 - 2:30
For more information, call Maureen at 325-1180, ext. 114

Wesley's Mothers is a peer support group for mothers whose children are in county, State, or Federal Correctional Facilities. The moms who attend say they finally have a place where they're understood. A place where they can talk about the shame, self-blame, isolation, fear, and helplessness they experience in relation to both their children's poor choices and the conditions of their children's lives behind bars.

It's an anonymous and open group where mothers offer and receive support!

VOLUNTEER!

Licensed clinicians can volunteer as little as 1 hour every week or 2 to provide care for those in need.  Our volunteers love their time here:  There is almost no paperwork, and they get to work with highly-motivated individuals.


Help out with fundraising:  Provide legal consultations, massage or other services.  If you have something you would like to offer give us a call.
