Counseling

Therapy is the core of our program. We believe helping people to work through past trauma and real-time current life challenges is the key to preventing a person from relapsing and re-offending.  We use a "Meet me where I'm at" style counseling and offer it 1 on 1 and in a group setting depending on the client's needs.

Mentoring / Life Skills

We provide our clients with a mentor to help them get things done.  Mentors engage the client regularly in life skills development activities and hold them accountable for case goals like completing community service, paying fines, getting fit or quitting smoking.  Mentors can help write resumes, help apply for jobs, prepare for interviews, help with following through and in many cases transport clients to treatment and other important appointments.

Case management

In most cases, our clients need more than just a little group counseling to achieve lasting change.  Our case managers assist clients with finding resources and they work closely with their counselor and mentor to create and support case plans that include the client's immediate needs, long term goals, and any court-ordered compliance.

Pro-Social Activity

An idle mind can be dangerous and one of the hardest things to do is make new friends once you are sober and law abiding.  Old friends and boredom are high-risk factors so we provide our clients with supervised pro-social activities regularly. We engage in healthy activities like sporting events, concerts, art exhibits, fun parks, aquariums, expos, community events, and outreach activities.

Employment Assistance

One of the hardest things to deal with is getting a job once you have a criminal record.  In most cases, people are forced to change jobs after an offense either because they get fired or they can't work in the same field.  We work with each client individually to identify job opportunities that are both gainful and meaningful. We provide assistance with resume writing, interviewing techniques, clothing, and transportation to interviews in some cases.

Social Services

Our primary objective is to help people make lasting change in their life. We can provide a spectrum of things to help people through the transition. We offer things like assistance with housing, finding a doctor, medical transportation, legal help, specialty meetup groups and navigating government programs.

Specific services we provide include:

  • Individual Counseling
  • Group Counseling
  • Peer Mentoring
  • Pro-Social Activities

Clients whose needs fall outside the scope of our services or scheduling availability are referred to other community resources.
