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.
The Lincoln Center for Family and Youth unites its efforts under the vision of improving community and individual wellness through mental wellbeing practices. 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 that incorporate mental health counseling into students’ daily lives.
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. Not everyone suffers from mental illness, but everyone maintains their individual mental health to stay well and active. At The Lincoln Center for Family and Youth, we spread our mental health fluency to others while continually learning and expanding our boundaries so our vision fully encompasses the range of mental, social, and behavioral wellbeing.
We seek to help and understand our clients without judgement 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.
