Our Services

Our Services: Education is a fundamental goal of what we do. We do not want to tell you what to do but rather give you the information for you to make an informed decision on what works for you. That is the reason Michael regularly writes informational columns in the local newspaper and provides free CEU training for social workers in the community twice a year.
