The PAST Project


"Prevailing And Surviving  Together"

At The PAST Project, we are focused on providing services at the highest levels of client satisfaction and we will do everything we can to meet your expectations. With a variety of Motivational Techniques, we are sure you'll be happy working with us. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us at our 24/7 helpline or send us an email. Fighting chaos and victimization does not have to be fought alone or with numerous trips to the therapist. We understand that past trauma's initiate barriers that are hard to overcome alone. The PAST Project works to help keep the effects of trauma in the past. Participation in the arts, coupled with individual and group discussions that extends the therapeutic process, puts the client one step closer to that preferred or desired individual.
