HUGS is an incredible nonprofit organization that provides professional services to those in need throughout Savannah and its surrounding areas. Speaking from personal experience, I have been using their counseling services over the past year and a half and it has completely changed my life for the better. The staff and volunteers are some of the most compassionate, loving, and sincere people I have ever met. I tell everyone I know about HUGS and highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of help. Thank you, HUGS, for all you have done for me and all the other lives you have changed over the years!

HUGS = Altruism at its finest
Their counselors exceeded my expectations. I never dreamt I would benefit from any form of therapy; especially, at an affordable rate. This nonprofit is a blessing to Savannah and others should follow their lead.

Several of the counselors here have helped me and my family to function better and to become stronger and happier. They provide a resource that we otherwise would not have been able to access.
