Coming Soon to Our Community :
LGBTQ+ Support Groups
Many LGBTQ individuals experience negative mental health issues due to the prejudice and other biases they face. Research suggests that these individuals are at higher risk for depression, anxiety, and addiction or substance abuse. We understand there are limited LGBT+ resources in our community and will be adding support groups for both children and adults to our services.
Caregiver Support Groups
Silence in families and communities can isolate caregivers, making it difficult to express emotions, process the impact of disclosure, and seek necessary support to move forward. In our upcoming caregiver support groups, we will have the opportunity to address these issues to promote healing for both caregivers and their children.
National Children's Alliance Accreditation
The Caring House Child Advocacy Center is working towards becoming an accredited member of the NCA. The Agency is receiving VOCA assistance to enhance our ability to become federally accredited.
What We've Been Up To
Do you have extra time on your hands and want to make a difference?
You can volunteer at Caring House!
The volunteer will answer the crisis line, respond to emergencies within the shelter during third shift as needed, and assist program staff by securing, maintaining, cleaning and organizing the shelter. If the shelter is quiet and clients do not need assistance, the volunteer may rest/nap during the overnight shifts. There is space available in the shelter office to lie down. However, a volunteer must always be alert to the needs of the shelter residents and be ready to answer the crisis line.
