Impact and Programs
Our services support healthy family functioning, increase academic achievement, reduce juvenile crime, support seniors who live independently and reduce the negative individual and community impact of mental health issues.
In the 2020-21 fiscal year, we will increase our outreach into the community via in-person and telehealth services through our Mental Health Clinic while also relaunching our Day Treatment programming according to COVID-19 safety models. The addition of our Community Advocate position will support community members who have had frequent interaction with local law enforcement. We will also increase fundraising efforts to support low-income clients who have been particularly affected by recent job loss or loss/reduction of insurance coverage.

We serve up to 4,000 youth, adults, and families annually through mental health counseling, day treatment services, school-linked mental health counseling, diversion programing, senior chore services and other direct services.
