Program funded: January 2016 through December 2018
People seeking support through this program are not severely mentally ill, yet they do suffer from emotional and mental anguish that limits their ability to function. Clients often are dealing with depression, anxiety, social avoidance, panic disorders, grief and loss issues, parenting problems, relationship issues or substance abuse recovery, to name a few. On top of these issues, many have a limited income and struggle to get or keep steady housing, employment, food and medical care. They cannot access other community mental health services because they either do not qualify or do not have insurance coverage. The counselors in this program work with clients on their mental health issues while offering practical help by connecting the client to other community resources for housing, food and more.

Update in 2018: Due to the closure of the YWCA counseling center, this program has ended.
