If you need counseling and you are either uninsured or unable to afford the cost of your copayments, we can help. If you are unsure about whether you qualify, just give us a call. We’ll be happy to help you figure out what you need and who can help you. If you are eligible for our services, we’ll schedule you for an evaluation appointment with our director. We’ll get to know you, you’ll get to know us, and we’ll develop a care plan together. You’ll then be linked with one of our therapists and, if needed, we'll help you find a psychiatrist. And if you need support with issues related to housing, employment, social services, or other challenges we’ll address that as well.
Women's Support Group
Every other Thursday we offer a confidential, counselor-led support group for women who are healing from trauma, harassment, or abuse. Women learn practical skills for dealing with what happened to them and both give and receive support from each other. The group runs in 12-week (6-session) increments and members are asked to commit to attend regularly. For more information, call or email us.
Peer support plays an important role in wellness for many people. In the past, we've had a Grief Group, a group for families and loved ones affected by mental illness, and a group for moms with incarcerated children. Groups are started and run as the need arises. Currently, we have one peer support meeting each week.
The Living Room
Wednesdays, 1:00 - 5:30 pm
Every Wednesday, our volunteers offer coffee, tea, and a safe place to heal and grow. In The Living Room, peers create a nonjudgmental space in which to 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 and respect. Come when you can; stay as long as you want.
Yoga for Overall Wellness
We offer weekly yoga sessions to help individuals gain strength and flexibility,
and to relieve stress and physical pain.
For more information, call or email us.
URBAN YOUTH OUTREACH
Through this program, we provide individual, family and group therapy and other supports to young men aged 16-24 affected by violence, and their families. Most of the youth enter our program while they are incarcerated on the Minor’s Unit at the Monroe County Jail, a unit that houses 16-18 year old boys. They engage in group and individual therapy while they are incarcerated and, for those who want it, the support continues after they are released. Once out of jail, some youth need help finding housing, re-enrolling in school, getting drug or alcohol abuse treatment, and applying for job training programs, all while continuing to face the challenges of poverty and trauma. Our goal is to provide the support they need to live safe and healthy lives.
