Our roots go back to the 1970s.  Today, we use our experience and knowledge to benefit the community by providing quality, cost-effective services.  Services aim to prevent homelessness and counter things like unemployment, use of high cost emergency room and hospitalization services, and involvement in the criminal justice system – significant social issues that easily result when people with mental illness go without treatment and services they need to get better.
