We’re making it better for everyone.
When the project is complete, all of our Carroll County services, from counseling and behavioral health to domestic violence intervention and victim support groups, will be housed in one remarkable space.
It will be a place where neighbors can find help, maybe not today or even next year. But when they need us, we will be there. And that makes Carroll County an even better place to be.
You Can’t Heal When You’re Hungry
When someone is in crisis or a victim of violence, they may suddenly find themselves without shelter, income or family Support. If that happens, we will help them secure a safe and stable environment and provide food, shelter and clothing while they are recovering.
Families with children are especially vulnerable. Our case managers work directly with landlords and leasing offices to provide financial assistance so that children can stay in their home schools.
The Hidden Epidemic
One in three women are victims of domestic violence at some time in their lives. Men can be victims, too. For Janie, the abuse was a secret she held closely. No one knew she lived in a state of fear, controlled by her abusive partner. When her children grew old enough to understand what was going on, she gathered the courage to call our domestic violence hotline. With the help of her FCS counselor and support services, she was able to leave her partner and start over.
Iris is a regular face around West End Place. One of our senior adult day members, she’s a fan of our day trips, especially the lunch outings. Iris enjoys socializing with the other seniors and participating in the many activities we offer. She loves our special events when we bring in musicians or other entertainers, and we love having her here!
Mental Healthcare For All
The new West End Place will be home to our adult, family and child behavioral health services. In order to provide access to all, we accept most Insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid, and offer a sliding scale fee for those who are uninsured. Our goal is to help those suffering from mental health or abuse issues to heal and live productive, fulfilling lives.
