Hope for Families,There are no words that can truly describe our experience. We had no clue what a wonderful journey that lie ahead of us. Lynn and Ken are two of the most amazing people we have ever met. Through GOD, and Lynn and Ken, we were matched with our birthparents. Lynn or Ken never left us hanging. One or the other was present for every phone and and every meeting with the birthmother. They brought so much comfort to us through the entire adoption. Call day or night, same question as the day before and they will be pleased to help out. Always glad to hear from you the first call to now that our son is a year old. They have a passion and gift to help out adoptive parents and take every birthmother serious and watch over them and make sure they have everything at their fingertips to get them through a healthy pregnancy, as if they were family. It meant the world to us that even after the pregnancy Ken and Lynn counselled our birthparents through their road to recovery for free and seemed more than pleased to do so. Lynn builds such a great bond with the birthmother so her decision for adoption is truly what she desires. We showed up 7 days before our sons due date and they treated us as if we were family visiting from out of town. Showing us around town and taking us to some great places to eat even the first night in town. We truly believe that Lynn and Ken have a wonderful relationship with God and that through him they work wonders. We had such an amazing experience becoming a family thanks to Hope for Families. We are hoping to start the process again in 2016 and could not imagine going through anyone else but Hope for Families.A & T

We have been on a long road to starting our family. After many attempts with no success we looked into adoption. We came across Hope For Families while searching online. After meeting with Ken and Lynn we were very pleased with their knowledge of the field and with the level of comfort they made us feel about moving forward. Within a short period of time we were blessed with a beautiful baby. Hope for Families are very competitive with their cost which helped us move so quickly to have such a beautiful baby. Between being in constant contact with her, taking her to doctors appointments, and actually going shopping with her to the store for clothing, Hope for Families worked very hard to take care of our birthmother. The staff at the hospital are very familiar with Hope For Families. We cant explain how happy and grateful we are that Hope For Families have given us our dream come true. Thank you Lynn, Ken, the entire staff and everyone that played a part in such a wonderful outcome.

Incredibly caring and professional people working here! I was in counseling with Dan and Ken for many months. They helped me through my divorce and recovering from a drug addiction. Before I came to HFF I was a mess and had been through scores of counselors therapists and psychologists. The people here helped me to become a more mature, more responsible, more free and happy person. My life has completely changed, for the better! I recommend Hope for Families to anyone with troubles in their personal life or marriage, or anyone who needs counseling for any other reason. The people here and I have become very close friends. Sometimes when I'm in town I just show up to say hi! Someone is always there to make me feel welcome, especially the lovely vivacious administrator, Jann. I love these people!HIGHLY RECOMMEND! God bless.

I have dealt with other moving companies before that have been a nightmare but i am very impressed with these guys. They are easy to book with (I recommend booking in the beginning or middle of the month), they are affordable (they accept only cash or check), they are professional (the don't subcontract movers, all of their guys have been with them for a while and professionally trained), and they get the job done fast - literally in and out! I love this company and will continue to use them in the future.

Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
