Research shows that when people connect with others who have like-experiences, they learn from each other, share and open up about their experiences, and grow from the interactions. Teresa Gross worked in the Appleton Area School District for 20 years as a teacher of High School Communicative Arts. She began to notice an increase in students, and colleagues, who were absent, suffering from chronic physical ailments, apathy, and behavior changes. To better handle these difficult situations, Teresa acquired her Master’s in Counseling. She worked at the Harbor House and the Outagamie County Jail in order to gain her 3000 hours to become a licensed professional counselor. While at the jail, calls came out to her from the cells: “Mrs. Gross!” Her students were now becoming incarcerated inmates. She knew at this time that programs needed to be created in order to help people deal with their emotions and difficult life-challenges.
“These programs will enlighten, educate, and help people move forward toward a happier, healthier life. Each of the programs in “A Village” is designed to combine Education, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and a variety of tools to use when facing life’s challenges.”
“We truly want to create “A Village” of Support.”
