The center provides "family and social ministry" services, workshops and training programs, and other services including case management, advocacy, short-term family and individual counseling, crisis intervention, information and referral, and emergency assistance. Six-week workshops are conducted on parent-child relationships covering such subjects as parent-teen communication, child safety, praise, healthy touch, limit-setting, obstacles, emotional state of parent, and stressors. One-time lectures are also given. Support groups for caregivers, grandparents who are raising their grandchildren ("Grandparents as Parents Again" support group) and young parents programs are also provided.
