We understand that, more than anything, education is the key to success and that a skill gap – any skill gap – can mean the difference between moving ahead or falling behind.
At Pressley Ridge, we do everything we can to fill in those gaps, whether the gap is academic, vocational, financial, social, or emotional. We offer the following educational courses and support services either on-site at our vibrant community center or off-site, in partnership with other qualified and credentialed instructors:
Each client is assigned a support specialist who will assess the client’s needs, help him/her access much needed services, provide counseling, and coordinate his/her personalized care among various service providers.
MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
Including individual therapy (delivered in home or in a therapist’s office) and medication management are available to all clients in all programs.
