In 2017, a mini community grant was given to Cheryl A. Francis, a Licensed Professional Counselor to provide mental health services to the underserved in the community. As a result a significant number of individuals were provided mental health education, awareness and services to both professional and non professional citizens in the community.
Our community became empowered about mental health illnesses and the impact of mental illness on an individual and the community at large. As services were provided, we recognized our support was essential in stabilizing those served. Services were limited and had to be brief to meet grantors specifications. Many had to be turned away, and those who received services, some needed ongoing and additional support.
There were multiple barriers that were left unaddressed in order for these individuals to Thrive. Thus the formation of Rebounding With A Purpose (RWAP) – to provide much needed services and address the barriers to treatment with community involvement. An aware community is a healthy community.
MISSION: To provide comprehensive accessible and affordable mental health and substance use services along with housing resources to allow those who are willing to begin again, the opportunity to become purposefully stable.
VISION: To successfully empower individuals to be mentally, socially and physically stable through appropriate and accessible supports.
