We have a long, rich history in Southwest Michigan. In 2004, the former Guidance Clinic and the former MAPS merged, and in the summer of 2005 we held celebrations to announce our new umbrella name: The Community Healing Centers. This merger accomplished several key goals, including strengthening services to children and families, and expanding our capacity to provide services for individuals with mental health and substance use disorders.

Since becoming Community Healing Centers, we’ve served over 50,000 people, meeting the mental health and addiction and recovery needs of children, individuals, and families here in Southwest Michigan. We pride ourselves on offering a range of programming that embraces children, youth, and adults, while extending opportunities for support through home visits, schools, and community locations.



We provide an inclusive, diverse, and equitable environment that is accessible to all.


We treat all with dignity and respect.


We hold ourselves to the highest standards of ethical behavior.
