Our History

Healing Partners was created in 2019, based on the need of quality, ethical and cultural sensitive mental health services for Latinos and other disadvantaged groups. This nonprofit was created in the area of Warren county to provide sensible solutions. We are consistently growing, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!

Our Mission

 We focus on providing free to low cost, cultural sensitive mental health services to the Latino community and other disadvantaged groups in order to reduce the stigma that may be attached to mental illness or emotional issues in certain populations.
