We are partnered with Professional Clinical Recovery Services, Faith Based Organizations, Government Support Agencies, District Courts, Probation and Parole as well as local NA & AA Groups.

We continue to provide support for each area of recovery including assistance acquiring Vital Documents (Birth Certificates, State and Social Security Identifcations), removing barriers to securing treatment and recovery services as welll as employment opportunities. Your donation will contribute to our participants obtaining those documents allowing them access to much needed supports.

Life Skills Training

We are in process of procuring the equipment and appliances necessary to teach basic life skills, such as meal preparation.

These types of trainings encourages personal automomy and replaces unhealthy behaviors with positive alternatives.

Coping Skills and Self-Expression

From June to Dec. 2020 we recorded 1,978 persons accessing our facility for services and support. We are serving our community with compassion and care, planting seeds and nourishing the growth of hope and change.

We support healthy families by providing classes like the "Good Dads" to help fathers build or rebuild relationships with their children and coparent effectively with other caregivers of their children. We are also implementing a Community Reinforcement and Family Training program to support the families of those in recovery.
