What We Do
Since 1899, we have served a vibrant, multicultural community. We use a trauma-informed, culturally responsive model to promote health and wellness and create opportunities for educational and economic advancement.
Why We Do It
We were founded on the belief that every person should be able to pursue their life's purpose. Working in areas of high economic hardship, we fill the gaps that leave low-income individuals and families struggling.
How We Do It
We serve thousands through direct services in four divisions that work collaboratively to meet the varied needs of those we serve: Association House High School, Child Welfare, Behavioral Health, and Community Health & Workforce Development.
We respond to real and urgent needs in our community.
