CareSeries


CareSeries exists to help individuals find hope, be honest, and grow through any season of life through confidential support and recovery groups with others who are facing similar life challenges. While CareSeries groups are not a place for therapy, they do provide a confidential, Christian setting where participants can be honest and grow. Each group is lead by a trained facilitator who desires to offer encouragement and guidance on the path to healing.
