Community Wellness Program

We strive to provide wellness and counseling services grounded in best practices and goodness of fit. We are committed to a strengths-based approach respecting all individuals and families and work with a number of dedicated community partners to help build resilience in individuals, families and our community.

We provide counseling services free of charge to our members. Please call Leith Colton, Community Wellness Director at 914.305.6024 to schedule a confidential intake assessment appointment during regular business hours. You can also reach our counseling and wellness department by email at lcolton@carvercenter.org. If we cannot accommodate a specific request we will provide referrals to other local agencies.

If you are having a mental health emergency or need help with an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.

The Carver Center Community Wellness Program supports our children, adolescents, and adults with advocacy, mindfulness, conflict resolution, and communication skills. Included in our offerings are individual therapy, family and group sessions, and linkage to other Port Chester-based resources.

NEW OFFERINGS
We are a passionate and innovative team of people striving to do trauma-informed work that supports wellbeing. Because we value collaboration and teamwork, members of our staff and community partners also participate and help to facilitate some of our ongoing programs:

  • Adult Learning Circles: We meet most Wednesdays at Carver Center from 4:00-5:00pm. This group is for those individuals interested in exploring mindful solutions to everyday challenges.
  • Senior Breakfast meets the first Friday of each month at 9:00am from September-June at the Carver Center.
  • Senior Connections: We welcome senior citizens for social connections, learning, intergenerational opportunities, etc. Facilitated by Carver staff.
  • Latino Connection: Meets once per week, an opportunity to come together. This group is facilitated by FSW staff member, Sandra Batista.

 

The goal of all Carver Center Community Wellness programming is to provide the people that we serve opportunities to build self-sufficient lives by serving, educating and empowering them with the necessary tools and strategies. We do this by providing individual, family, and group therapy supporting individuals and families in stress management and healthy communication.
