The Family Services division provides counseling assistance to people of all ages experiencing a variety of life problems. The program responds to a growing need in the Greater Lansing community by targeting services to low income families and adjusting fees based on ability to pay. No one is denied services due to lack of financial resources. Family Services is funded in part by Capital Area United Way with additional financial support provided by health insurance payments, other third party reimbursement, grants, and private fees.
Mental Health Counseling is provided to children, adolescents, families, and adults who are experiencing stressors, and situational problems. Counseling helps improve relationships and develop skills to better manage life’s challenges.
At-risk youth receive Adolescent Screening and Assessment services in Nexus, a free program that helps connect teens and parents to community resources.
Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment is provided by the New Focus program and supported by funding from Mid-South Substance Abuse Commission. Services include comprehensive evaluations, individual and family counseling, outreach, and follow-up services. New Focus collaborates with the Lansing School District, Ingham County Family Court, Teen Court, Truancy Court, and other youth serving agencies.
