Serving Women in Recovery and their Children


We have served over 2800 women and children in the past 19 years. Our purpose is to build healthier, happier, and productive futures for women in recovery and their children. The agency provides individual and group substance abuse counseling, access to medical services, mental health assessments, life skills training, financial counseling, on-site child care, twelve step meetings, and connections to job readiness programs.
