A Place for Families, a Place for All
So many of us need a place that provides healing, a place to receive the help that we truly need. That is exactly what the Amberwing Center for Youth and Family Well Being provides to the northern Wisconsin and Northern Minnesota Areas. The Center celebrated their 10-year Anniversary today with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
“Amber Wing has transformed the face of mental health care in our community. This has provided an expanded level of care,” says Traci Marciniak President of the Miller-Dwan Foundation
As a special project of the Miller-Dwan Foundation, Amberwing was created through contributions from people around the region. The Foundation continues to depend on ongoing philanthropic support to fund specialized Amberwing programming, maintain the facility and ensure that everyone has access to the mental health and chemical dependency care they deserve.
The center provides a friendly and welcoming environment for growth and healing and progresses the mental health care standard in the region due to a team of experts specifically trained to employ evidence-based practices as well as inventive, holistic care. These developments are for youth with serious emotional or behavioral challenges, or those dealing with alcohol or drug problems. Amberwing features daylong intensive programming and evening outpatient therapy, while the Family Resource Center provides support, education and assistance to the greater community.
“We have staff that are really caring and committed to kids. They feel called to do this work in a way that can make a difference for children and their families.” Says Becky Hoversten-Mellem
Amberwing Center for Youth and Family Well-Being provides mental health services to children, youth and young adults ages birth to 26, and their families. Visit their website here, to find out more about the organization.
