It is important that you can commit to attending every week.

Other Groups & Classes

Better Boundaries Class: Cadillac

Boundary issues contribute to a range of contemporary social problems felt by victims, abusers, overachievers, and underachievers alike. Knowing when boundaries are violated and what to do about it isn’t a simple skill. It requires a surprising amount of adjustments.

This is a 10-week class. Pre-registration is required. Call 231-846-4495 to register. The cost is $5.00. This group is not currently meeting due to COVID-19.


This group meets during the school year. This group is for any teen, including children who are homeschooled; all are welcome! We meet every Thursday after school from 3:00 to 4:30 at Cadillac Junior High, room 118. Join us for pizza, pop, games, projects, learning about yourself, and building personal strengths. The last Thursday of the month is an outing. All are welcome. This group is not a sexual abuse-related group, but rather a safe space for teens to grow, learn, socialize and have fun!
