The approach to crisis intervention is that such services are time-limited and that they respond to a precipitating event which the individual needing service has experienced a crisis.

The counselors have regular on-going clinical supervision from a licensed Marriage, Family Therapist (MFT) in addition to their administrative supervision.

This program is designed to enhance a child's adjustment to his or her family's own situation and to promote violence-free life styles.

    I'm a victim of domestic violence, my beautiful twin daughters were taking by the state, after 8 years of complete suffering, and I'm being sorely used, and belittled, the emotional and psychological trauma is overwhelming, he hasn't strangled me in a while, yelling and screaming in my ear, I don't have much to live for, but I have a beautiful cat but I've adopted and she is my therapy cat and my friend. Little did I know he very twisted personality for believe is a narcissistic sociopath psychopath with different personality disorder, and is abusing alcohol, over the course of eight years I've been sorly used because I had money and he didn't, promise things that everything will be okay that I was getting my kids back in that we would live happily ever after all the while I was buying his next fix, roof over his head, colthed on his back, and his meal ticket. I don't know much about San Diego I am now only able to travel by buss and that is very scary for me. I get a small income that I would like to use to somehow get myself a permanent place by myself with my cat, I am not addicted to any drugs or alcohol or pills. I have numerous health issues I have heart failure and I have a hole in my throat due to being strangled that's been there five years and that should have been sewn up a long time ago oh, I haven't had a chance literally, I pray my throat hasn't lead to Barrett esophagus which is cancer of the esophagus. I reaching out to you because I I don't know what's wrong with my mother, my dad committed suicide 9 years ago and we ran a religious Church goods store Mira Mesa. I'm struggling with a lot of grief and loss at this moment and finding reasons to hang on to life and my car see me through .I did have to give up my twin daughters for adoption, because that time frame I was stuck in a vehicle with no money waiting for him to get out of jail oh, and I asked my family for some money to get to court but nobody helped. I would not panhandling I don't know how and I was stuck in barrio Logan, which was a very scary place some time ago, for me I was rather shell shocked. The trauma has been catastrophic and detrimental to my health, as well as is he is toxic and all the false promises, everything would be better. I tried to get along at almost any cost but that usually find his next fix, which is alcohol. And then he browbeats me emotionally and psychologically, and I've had enough I'm 45 years old, I'm giving this message every amount of strength that I have right now, I'm being very vulnerable to get help for myself and my therapy cat. Also I've been on numerous waiting list, pardon my ignorance since 2007 in 2011 for section 8. I'm really trying here to help myself and my beloved pet Thank you for listening, Sincerely Eleanor

    I have approximately 8 brand new mixed holiday barbies that I would like to donate to children from poor or abusive situations. I want to make sure they get in the hands of the children in your assistance programs and not sold for profit. How can I accomplish this through your center programs? Please advise.
