Our Family’s Therapeutic Services program focuses on serving those whose needs are not met by other systems in our community—those who might otherwise fall through the cracks.
Ruben* was homeless and had serious mental health and substance use issues when he began counseling services with Our Family. Through hard work and supportive therapy, Ruben began to make significant improvements and started to gain the skills he needed to make healthier, more constructive choices.
After just a short time, Ruben got completely sober and found a permanent home. He began taking his medication regularly and participating in ongoing therapy. These actions dramatically helped him to manage his mental illness. He is now successful at his job, developing a loving and nurturing romantic relationship, and is even thinking about marriage—something that he didn’t consider possible until now. Perhaps most touching, for the first time in his life, Ruben says he is genuinely happy.
