The Guidance Center

The Right Support at the Right Time.

The Guidance Center's mission is to enhance the development and well-being of children, adults, and families in need throughout the communities we serve. Our vision is that the people we serve will thrive at home, school, work and community life. The agency provides a broad range of highly effective services that help children, adults and families unlock potential and build better lives. Services spanning Early Childhood, Children and Youth Services, Adult Services, and Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities are delivered with excellence and professionalism in an atmosphere of caring, hope and respect. Last year The Guidance Center served more than 23,000 children and adults.

Our programs reflect an ongoing commitment to practical innovation, measurable results and client empowerment. Here is an example of the impact of our Workforce Development program:
