If you want the support, the support is definitely here”

Before this program I lacked knowledge, Positive Growth has given me great knowledge. I appreciate so much to be given so great knowledge and time. . . until I get my GED.

A D-S Refugee

In the past, I have been counseled by other therapists. My therapist at Positive Growth Intervention Center is the first counselor who exemplified the type of effective counseling that I needed. They emulated a balance between being professional and personable. The therapist was compassionate and open-minded. They balanced humor with expertise in manner that is easy to receive. Their methods were not only effective but refreshing”. I am so grateful for the opportunity to receive family and individual counseling at Positive Growth Intervention Center. The Therapists are passionate, dedicated and committed to their work in the community. In addition, their willingness to go above and beyond to serve their clients is genuine and greatly appreciated

Thank you for all you did to improve my son’s life while he was at your residential care program. You gave him a place filled with guidance and support to help him work through the things we couldn’t resolve at home. I thanked his judge for sending him to you. I thank God for you all.

Mother of C.D

The service is good here, the after school even has transportation to bring my child home! My son likes it he says ‘I learn about being healthy and not bullying I can play more.’ We came to America for him to get a better education–he gets that at Positive Growth.

Thank you to the staff at Positive Growth for helping me become the man I am today.”
