Dear FCBC Family & Community,
As the new Executive Director of HOPE Center Harlem, I am delighted to work alongside you in a new and exciting way!
We’re at a time in our history when meeting competing demands, in the midst of a global pandemic and racial unrest, can cause us to feel exhausted. Taking care of ourselves emotionally and physically are among our most important priorities. Although these past few months have been stressful for many of us, I hope you had time to recharge and have found our previous offerings useful in helping you cope with life’s challenges.
As we begin our upcoming programming year, please note that nearly all of our services will be offered virtually as most of us continue to work from home. In the coming months, we plan to deepen our partnerships with academic, medical, community-based agencies and expand our networks across New York City. We will engage in development work that will produce new and revised services to accommodate the needs of our community.
I believe that therapy should be accessible, relatable and transferable. At the HOPE Center, we aim to collaborate with clients to draw upon their inherent gifts, resilience and resources to overcome challenges, rebuild emotional foundations, and cultivate new skills as we journey together – empowered to pursue unlimited possibilities!
It is the work, side-by-side with FCBC pastoral staff, mental health experts, thought leaders and community members, that fuels our commitment to being an even more client-centered organization. We look forward to bringing you dynamic programs, services and events that will address your needs – stay tuned.
Please know that we are here to support you in making the optimal choice to help you reach your mental health and wellness goals. We have resources available online and I invite you to explore the HOPE Center website. We look forward to answering any questions you may have and working with you in the future.
On behalf of our team at the HOPE Center, we wish you good health!
Dr. Lena Green
