To the H.O.P.E. Center
ABOUT HOPE CENTER
The HOPE (Healing On Purpose and Evolving) Center is the manifestation of Senior Pastor Michael A. Walrond’s vision, to effectively support the vast mental health needs of the parishioners of First Corinthian Baptist Church, and the Harlem community at large. The center seeks to minimize the stigma shrouded around communities of color when seeking mental health services.
Our HOPE Innovators are persons who make healing a lifestyle. Our innovators courageously transform their lives through building an alliance with licensed clinicians and applying the tools gained to their day to day living. This therapeutic alliance enables each HOPE Innovator to sift through the shadows of their current narratives and simultaneously develop a narrative that speaks to the essence of who they are.
CHILD & ADOLESCENT GUIDANCE
The H.O.P.E Center offers socio-emotional, spiritual, and behavioral health guidance to our hope innovators ranging from 6 to 18 years of age who have socio-emotional, mental health, and life-skill acquisition challenges. These services are provided within the center. Through our intake and multiple diagnostic assessments, our hope-innovators level of care and needs are determined and HOPE [treatment] goals are established. Core offerings include: Assessment and HOPE [treatment] Planning; Individual and Family Guidance; and Group Guidance during the day and evenings.
The H.O.P.E. Center offers services to adults navigating the emotional landscape of life, which at times is experienced as debilitating. We are purposed to address the holistic needs of each hope innovator physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually, and culturally. We accomplish this by crafting and upholding an environment advantageous toward personal improvement and evolution. We provide solution-focused therapeutic engagement that aspires to assist hope innovators in being their highest self through functioning in wholeness and healing whether at home, work or within society. Services offered are individual, couples guidance, marriage guidance, and group and family guidance during the day and evenings.
