Testimonials

Receiving services in my home was a godsend. My ex husband and I went through a divorce last August and my son became depressed and refused to go outside for weeks. The counselor we worked with was very knowledgeable and skilled. My son is now back to doing his regular activities and enjoying his life. Thanks Child and Family Solutions.
