Providing Hope, Health, and Healing

Our Mission

We strive to strengthen our communities by helping children, families, and adults heal from the trauma of abuse, addiction, and behavioral and mental health disorders.  We believe that reaching out to our community with prevention, intervention and treatment services, is an effective, efficient way to deliver care, information, and support to those in need.


Our History

Community Healing Centers has a long, rich history in Southwest Michigan.  In 2004, the former Guidance Clinic and the former MAPS merged.  In the summer of 2005, we held celebrations to announce our new umbrella name:  The Community Healing Centers.  This merger accomplished several key goals, including strengthening services to children and families, and expanding capacity to provide services for individuals with Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders.  Since becoming Community Healing Centers, we’ve served over 50,000 people, meeting the Mental Health and Addiction and Recovery needs of children, individuals and families here in Southwest Michigan.  We pride ourselves in offering a range of programming that embraces children, youth and adults, extending opportunities for support through home visits, schools and community locations.
