    Some extra thought goes a long way

    A Place to Heal

    In our counseling center we have a wellness room – it’s for clients needing a safe spot to stay for a while. They can find that place with us.

    This kind of space really needs to feel right – homey touches and some warmth go a long way. If you need this type of refuge, you’re looking for a new start and a place to heal.

    To set our patients up for success, we had to change this wellness room into something that fosters comfort and security.

    We added a brand-new mattress, made a bed frame, and purchased sheets, curtains, and blankets for the room. We also included slippers and new clothing options.

    People suffering extreme trauma need and deserve the very best chance to help them get back on their feet. And with this new and improved space, we’re starting that journey on the right foot.
