Promoting wellness through education and support.
HOCW offers counseling for those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Our counselors are trained and certified in Narrative Exposure Therapy, a form of treatment for victims of violence who have experienced trauma.
HOCW provides health education classes on topics including personal hygiene, sexually transmitted diseases, domestic violence, post-traumatic stress, anger management, healthy communication, and the safe preparation of food. Our objective is to bring awareness to health related issues, but if our clients are seeking medical attention, we will connect them to local facilities for affordable health care. Sometimes we offer free testings, like for blood type or HIV, at HOCW. These services are largely facilitated through our partnership with Rosalind Franklin University in Chicago.
