Founded nearly 40 years ago as the St. Francis Burial and Counseling Society, the Wendt Center for Loss and Healing offers a broad range of support services for people coping with feelings of grief. Here is a brief overview of three prominent support services at the Wendt Center:
Adult counseling—Designed to support people in times of illness, loss, and death, adult programming includes one-on-one counseling, family therapy, and support groups.
Crisis response—Counselors at the Wendt Center work hard to support adults, children, and families during national and local crises. Throughout the years, the Wendt Center has provided counseling in the aftermath of September 11, workplace and school crises, and neighborhood violence.
Domestic violence—The Wendt Center employs a licensed therapist with many years of experience in domestic violence treatment. Working out of the domestic violence intake center in Washington, DC, the domestic violence therapist provides short-term counseling services and serves as a liaison for long-term counseling at the Wendt Center.
