Acceptance in to the program is based on referrals that may be made by: the Court, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Batterer’s Intervention Programs, Crisis Centers, self-referrals, or other community resources.
After a referral is made, both parents should contact the Center to schedule and intake prior to any services being provided.
All individuals applying for services at the Center will be seen regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age disability, marital status, or ability to pay.
