The HOPE (Healing On Purpose and Evolving) Center is the manifestation of our Senior Pastor, Michael A. Walrond, Jr’s vision to provide free mental health resources to the First Corinthian Baptist Church community, and Harlem community at large. This healing space provides therapeutic services through licensed clinicians, who support, respect, and respond to the individual’s power to create the life they desire. Through individual, couple’s, and group guidance we companion with persons to balance, wellness, and wholeness.
Our HOPE Innovators are persons who make healing a lifestyle. Our innovators courageously transform their lives through building an alliance with licensed clinicians and applying the tools gained to their day to day living. This therapeutic alliance enables each HOPE Innovator to sift through the shadows of their current narratives, and simultaneously develop a narrative that speaks to the essence of who and what they are, whole, complete and lacking nothing.
Our mental health professionals utilize evidenced based therapeutic modalities to support a variety of daily living challenges ranging from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, trauma, to sexual abuse and domestic violence, as well as bereavement and marriage/family guidance. We look forward to journeying with you!
