The self help center has given me a place to voice my concerns and then be supported in my endeavors. I would very enthusiastically recommend the Self Help Center to anyone who shows interest.

Self Help Center is a lifesaver. I on a lonely path downward and needed help. I found out about the center and came one day to go to a group. I found it transformative. The people were so kind and supportive, it was a home away from home. I started going daily immediately. I had a relationship shortly after first coming and if it weren't for the center I would have had a difficult time managing. I stuck with it and soon was recovering quite well. I took a certification class to volunteer at the center and passed the test soon after. What joy and support I had gotten through the arduous study period. I have volunteered here for well over one year. This brought a me a whole new life. It increased my self-esteem and self worth. I now am happier than I've ever been with wonderful new friends and collegues. The cener saved my life in more ways than one. It has saved many lives and will continue to do so for many years to come.
