Motivated 4 Change
An opportunity for clients with limited financial resources to volunteer and engage with others in exchange for counseling services.
The HUGS’ “Motivated-4-Change Program” is designed to address social and emotional barriers contributing to joblessness, financial dependence, and recidivism. Clients who cannot afford to pay the discounted fees for counseling may apply for the Motivated-4 -Change Program and do volunteer work for the HUGS’ organization or participate in HUGS’ Creative Space Workshop in exchange for their therapeutic services.
Referrals are made by HUGS’ Counselors upon an individual’s completion of initial session/needs application, skills evaluation, and interest inventory. A fund is established to scholarship motivated individuals who are accepted into this program.
