On Emotional Wellness:
"I was unemployed for nearly a year, while trying to prevent homelessness, and deal with issues around family caregiving and marriage.
The counseling helped save my life. Thank you!”

I was homeless for years. Thanks for helping me to have hope again”
Morgan– age 40.
The peer-led sessions changed my life for the better! I can better deal with stress as a minority youth, help peers avoid negative behavior, and help adults understand the severeness of stress on youth!

Family Restoration and Healing Center (FRHC) provided me with affordable family counseling that helped save my marriage, and even gave us the option of a faith-based approach! The resources that you provided helped me to prevent homelessness, and receive skills on job readiness and training. Your family caregiver workshop gave me hope that help exists. I'm working now. And there's peace in my home. Thank you!" Ms. A
Your job readiness program gave me the confidence and skills to get a job that everyone else said I’d never obtain!” Sarah, age 19.
On Giving Hope:
"After being out of work for some time, my wife working only part-time, being able to keep up with our financial obligations was literally hopeless. My wife and I contacted Family Restoration and Healing Center, Inc. for help and insight. The organization provided us with a wealth of knowledge about organizations that could possibly help with our situation, as well as a list of services available in our area of which we had no prior knowledge. Several suggestions for employment were offered, along with job training availability. We were facing an eviction, which was stopped, and currently I am now employed and picking up the pieces of restoring my family spiritually and financially. The 360° of wholeness received from this organization not only blessed us financially, but helped strengthen our faith, and marriage as well. We need more organizations like Family Restoration and Healing Center, Inc. to renew the faith and strength of those who may have lost hope in hopeless situations."

The education and resources that you provide, are more helpful than you will ever know. I'm getting better now. God bless you for taking time to make a difference in lives across the country!"
On our Wholistic Approach:
"I love your book on 360° Wholeness, Mind-Body-Spirit: Achieving Mental, Physical and Spiritual Wellness! What a great resource for wholistic health! The strategies and guidance are AWESOME! I keep it at my desk so I can reference it throughout the day!"
"Thank you" for being such a wonderful organization with a great program for our children and young adults. The community needs a movement like yours to strengthen families in how they can be made whole - mentally, physically, and spiritually. I am a strong believer in the holistic approach to healing...and I am a witness that this approach works for the human being. God has a plan for this organization, and I am willing to put my gifts, talents and social connections on the table to help the Family Restoration and Healing Center succeed!!"
