The program is open to all children, families, singles and couples regardless of race, religion or socioeconomic status.



While there is a fee for the Counseling services, we do work on a sliding scale.  The sliding scale fees are based off a family’s income and will be assessed when making an appointment.  We are also able to accept some insurance plans.
