Mission, Vision, Values
The Lincoln Center for Family and Youth transforms lives and communities through education, coaching, and counseling. The Lincoln Center is a nonprofit, human services, community-based organization that provides alternative education, coaching, and mental health counseling services to individuals and families in and around Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. TLC is comprised of four divisions: The Leadership Academy, School-based Counseling, the Community Counseling Center, and Victim Services. These major programs are united under our mission to improve mental health both community-wide and specifically for our Leadership Academy students.
Our vision is an empowered community of individuals and families with the will and skill to reach their full potential. The Lincoln Center strives to advance the accessibility of mental health services by providing free and mobile counseling through our team of extensively trained counselors and by taking the lead in charting alternative educational practices. We want every student to have access to the resources they need to be successful and to reach for a better future. We consider ourselves mental health fluent, meaning that we possess an open-minded outlook on the way people think, encourage people to use resources to receive help, and endeavor to reduce stigma around mental and behavioral health.
We seek to help and understand our clients without judgment and provide a safe space for them to work through personal struggles.
We want to connect with each of our clients on a professional yet personal level in order to communicate that we value them and their unique situations.
We tailor our services to all of our students and clients to meet specific needs, whether these needs revolve around different teaching methods or flexible counseling services such as location or therapy style.
All staff at The Lincoln Center believe in our mission of improving the lives of people residing in and around Montgomery County.
