Residents are given access to group and individual counseling during their time in Hagar's House. Counseling can help people confront barriers and modify behaviors that interfere with emotional, physical and mental well being. Individual counseling may be used to treat specific, diagnosable mental health conditions (anxiety, depression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity, personality disorders) and/or address other concerns (stress, loss, career goals, relationship issues).
Hagar's House offers financial counseling as well as services that are designed to assist individuals or families with their financial needs. When clients make the decision to reach out for help, we customize an effective and affordable recovery program that is tailored to each person's particular needs. Those dealing with substance abuse are given access to high-quality, affordable care with a variety of payment options from Medicaid, Private Insurance, self and private pay.
Hagar's House Legal Advocates provide assistance and support to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault as they engage with the criminal or civil legal system. These services include matters involving criminal charges against the batterer, matters involving criminal charges against the survivor, obtaining and enforcing personal protection orders, pursuing divorce and child custody issues, landlord/tenant issues, and other matters. Legal Advocates are also available for court accompaniment to all court hearings.
