Our Mission

To decrease the number of suicide and opioid deaths in youth and adults of all ages, we utilize our expertise and resources to further our cause. We help these individuals practice healthy and safe lifestyles through the development of wellness plans, cognitive behavioral group therapy sessions, mental health ministry, art/music therapy, skill-building classes, relapse prevention training, and total fitness. Since 2019, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways. We measure our success not by monetary size, but by qualitative measurements, such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Imagine what we can achieve together!

  • a mental illness/developmental disorder

  • substance abuse disorder

  • homelessness

  • ex-offenders seeking re-entry

  • trauma/loss

  • incest /sexual abuse (anonymity observed)

  • HIV/AIDS
