Our Services


The Best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

Wellness Center

Designed to enhance well-being and recovery, and provide socialization in a caring community that fosters self-sufficiency. Participants can explore creative expression through art and music, and are encouraged to design their own wellness program based on their interests, needs, and goals.

Supported Independent Living

Mobile Crisis

In Home outreach
