Our Goal and Approach
To restore a stable and loving relationship between struggling parents and their children who have been taken into state custody and placed into foster care.
Children and their parents are provided a safe environment for emotional healing from abuse, neglect, and separation.
At Compassion House, we offer children, teenagers, and adults practical programs to give them access to hope, dignity, and emotional healing. We teach people that they can choose their future by how they respond to their past. Feelings of helplessness are generally rooted in a sense of powerlessness. We help people move from situations of indignity and hurt to a place where they feel like they have hope and control over their lives and future.
T. Raymond McCranie, our Family Counselor, has received the basic training in the use of Eye Movement, Desensitization, and Reprocessing (EMDR). This therapeutic approach is especially effective with early childhood trauma, PTSD, phobias and other issues negatively impacting a fulfilling and satisfying life.
