We conduct services in person and via tele-health. Our services are affordable and we do not refuse services due to a client's inability to pay. Our Financial Wellness division operates several programs to address the short and long-term financial needs of our clients. The programs fit into three broad categories: Managing Your Money; Owning a Home; and Financial Coaching. The majority of our clients are low to moderate-income households. Our clients range in age from as young as 5 to seniors (65+).
Part-time MSW. (clinical) Interns work directly with our multitude of programs, starting with observing and co-counseling while they learn our processes. Later, they are provided an opportunity to have a small caseload in which they would obtain consent, complete an in-depth assessment, assist in formulating a diagnosis, completing an MSE and pre/post CFARS, developing treatment plans and reviewing every 6 months, and providing ongoing weekly to bi-weekly counseling services. They also have opportunities to provide group counseling in an array of areas. Interns are also included in our monthly clinical staffing and will attend one or more agency events during the course of their internship.
