Counseling

The Samaritan Center offers non-clinical counseling to our boys and their families and encourages regularly scheduled professional, clinical counseling.
 

The non-clinical counseling, support, morale boosting and encouragement occurs on an as-needed basis and can include a single session during a crisis, or weekly sessions if a boy or family needs more encouragement.

There are also mandatory parenting classes held a few times each month. During these classes, families learn how to be better parents and role models. They learn skills to better cope with the stress of parenting, and the importance of consistency. They also learn not to succumb to emotional responses and tactics, but to exhibit calm control of the situation.

Because communication is key to future success, each boy is tested to see if there is need for a speech therapist. If so, one is provided.

The Samaritan Center will once again participate in the annual "Great Give," which will be held from midnight to midnight on May 17th.  This 24-hour online giving event (led by United Way of Palm Beach County, Achieve, Nonprofits First and United Way of Martin County) is designed to raise as much money as possible for local non-profits in a single day. When you contribute to the Samaritan Center on May 17th through the Great Give web site, your donation will be multiplied by additional dollars from a bonus pool raised by United Way of Palm Beach County.  Visit our donation page here, or click here to learn more.
