We are enlarging our scope as a referral and information agency for; the mentally ill, persons with addictions, the homeless, veterans and their families as we seek to include local community agencies in order to prevent duplication of services, to provide continuity and promote active participation with existing community programs.
Our services are Free to everyone and designed to prevent hospitalization or institutionalization and to slowly integrate those who want help back into the community with dignity, hope, passion and purpose
Our group focus is to provide tools and giving supportive solutions to each person so that they can fulfill their potential for a high quality of life, to become confident and productive individuals with the skills to functioning as independently as possible
Our long term goal is to dispel the myths and stigma associated with mental illness, addictions and the homelessness.
