what we do
Our approach is dependent on the Word of God, the work of the Holy Spirit and the grace of Jesus Christ. The counselor doesn’t ignore the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the client. The lens of the Scripture is used to seek a wholistic understanding of the person and opportunities of influencing healing and change. Teaching our clients the skills needed to make and sustain life changes is part of the treatment plans.
We provide individual, couples, children and family counseling for our immigrant clients who qualify. We work with clients in 6-week increments to encourage client to focus on practical strategies for change. We are committed to connect clients with a local church of their choice so they can build a support system to sustain their life changes.
We Check on the Progress Chronic Disease
We utilize the skills of Community Health Workers to help clients monitor chronic disease and the development of complications. Education on healthier choices for chronic conditions helps clients improve quality of life. We identify lifestyle, health habits and access to healthy solutions as part of the approach to help our clients make healthier choices. Our volunteer nurse routinely offers opportunities clients to scheduled weight checks, blood sugar screenings and blood pressure checks offered free of charge for the clients. Other blood screening tests are available for our clients at a reduced cost. Our volunteer physicians monitor our client's health needs.
END OF LIFE CARE
Support for Those in the Last Days or Months of their Life
We are humbled to enter this sacred space of suffering with clients who qualify. End of life care helps the client to live as fully as possible until the person passes away. We offer the opportunity to bring dignity for the process for both client and family.
Our end of life Community Health Workers offer support for the client and a voice for the unique wishes and preferences at end of life. Supporting the family or others who are important to our client is part of the services offered.
We are able to provide these and other end of life care services in partnership with many of our supporters who are committed to providing excellent care in this difficult time in a persons life.
FREE CLINIC AND SCREENING SERVICES
Providing Health and Referral Services in the Community
We have volunteer physicians who come twice a month to provide their services. Our resources are very limited, we don’t turn anybody away but, we reserve our limited resources for those who cannot receive health services anywhere else. We have over 80 community partners who help us with referal care.
At no Cost to Those that Qualify
We want to ensure no woman in the community has to go without regular pap smears, breast exams, and colonoscopy due to the inability to pay. Many partners help us provide specialty screenings.
