Mission, Vision, Values
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 transform lives and communities through education, coaching, and counseling.
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 value each client and student enough to connect with genuine care and without judgment, modeling healthy interaction in a safe space.
We believe each life is significant, and we seek to help each client and student find meaning in their choices, appreciate their progress, and become intentional in their identified purpose.
We adjust our approach to the needs, goals, and strengths of each human being we serve, so every client and student feels safe and able to grow, learn, and heal.
We strive to empower clients and students to become more connected to the world around them, challenging them to think about and solve problems in new ways, and encouraging curiosity about themselves and others.
