The Family Center was created in 1995 as a sanctuary from the complex challenges of both today’s world and “managed” health care. Founder and director Madeleine Lane, a licensed marriage and family therapist, had been serving at large, nonprofit agencies and found that meeting a client’s most basic, practical needs too often fell outside the boundaries in this corporate setting. She was determined to initiate a new model of treatment that could restore wholeness within families yet not fall prey to bureaucratic constraints.
Today, her nonprofit Family Center provides more than $100,000 worth of annual counseling, spiritual direction, educational programs, group facilitation and outreach. Of this, roughly half is made available at reduced costs for those otherwise unable to afford the Center’s help.
