Park Center provides services to more than 500 people per month through six programs, ranging from recovery services to housing to employment.

Guiding Principles

Hope - We believe that individuals can be active and contributing members of their community by defining their lives apart from their mental illness.

Choice - We believe that individual recovery is possible through loving care, educated choices and support services.

Education - We believe that active and ongoing advocacy, education about mental illness and the recovery process are necessary in order to empower members and reduce stigma in our community.

Quality - We believe that services should be continuously improved to align with current and emerging best practices.
