Outreach Services

We have so many services - so much more than our brief "about" page describes (or could contain, for that matter). Besides having 24-hour crisis lines and client intake (housing, etc.), we actually do more outside of our doors than in.

Outreach Services Include:

  • Counseling & Education
  • Group for adults and children
  • Speaking to children, teens , adults
  • Legal Advocacy
  • Medical Advocacy and accompaniment
  • Safety Planning
  • Court Accompaniment
  • Advocacy Services within the Social Services system
  • Transportation assistance
  • Housing assistance
  • Information and referrals
  • Children and teen counseling - one on one
  • Volunteer opportunities
