Rocker to the Rescue: Bridges Mental Health Therapy Program
This year, The Rocker has partnered up with Catholic Charities in the Greater Kalamazoo Area to help support, and raise funds for several of their amazing programs that benefit thousands of people across the region, and not just members of the Catholic Church.
Anybody can take part in their charitable programs, no matter your financial situation, religious affiliation, age, or gender. And The Rocker would like to help raise funds for these organizations to continue functioning across southwest Michigan during these busy times during the holiday.
This Week's Program: The Ark Services for Youth
The Ark provides a variety of services to runaway and homeless youth in crisis as well as their families. They are tailored to meet the needs of each youth and family.
Primarily, The Ark helps those in crisis become stable, develop strong and healthy relationships, and develop positive, achievable goals for the future.
"The Ark seeks to provide a safe place for youth and families to work on their goals, to reunite youth with their families, to empower youth to identify healthy lifestyle behaviors, and to develop positive decision-making skills."
The ARK Shelter is physically located in Kalamazoo, but serves youth and families in all nine counties across southwest Michigan.
They are open 24 hours, 7 days a week, and available through their crisis line at 1-800-873-8336.
