Mental illness or emotional/behavioral problems do not have to limit your opportunities for work, school performance or relationships. We at Volunteers of America believe everyone can find success – as long as they have the right support.

Services including counseling and group sessions are available M-F at the Highland Center for the adults in the Visions program.
