We provide the counseling and casemanagement to address their entire life, treating the individual and the family to provide them with the tools, beyond their immediate needs, to lead them to a life of greater self sufficiency and independence. We treat the individual with plans developed to meet their unique needs, and services provided to address their specific needs and barriers. Though no one is required to participate in any religious activities we provide spiritual direction to help individuals and families to cope with adversity and stress, learn to think positively, and discover their inner path - the direction their lives need to take to achieve a healthy balance in their lives.
