We are a grassroots organization formed in July 2019 to provide counseling services to the local community independent of cost or affordability. We provide low to no cost counseling to the local communities of Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne County. Additionally with the rise in suicide rates among youths we currently work with other non profits and schools to promote suicide awareness and prevention with seminars in anti bullying and wellness. The counseling and suicide prevention go hand in hand.
Our programs include the following funded through grants, fundraisers, sponsors, volunteers, and donations: • Services provided at Low/No Cost for Mental Health Outpatient Counseling. Serving clients in this capacity since August 2019. • Community Mental Health Wellness Seminars providing educational presentations. (Kids Empowered Anti Bully and Wellness at Upton Elementary, Royal Oak) • School and Community Seminars providing Suicide Awareness, Prevention, Education and Counseling (Member of the Oakland County Suicide Task Force and the local chapter of AFSP) Community Food Banks (Member of the Oakland County Homeless Coalition and head of the food bank task force for OCHC) • Local fundraising, education, awareness involvement including walks, wellness events, dinners. Provide youths with the opportunity to volunteer and give back and earn community service hours for graduation. • Animal Assisted Therapy Community programs.
