Currently more than 240 regular employees and 80 volunteers provide services to more than 7,500 people annually. Services are provided by 16 specialty clinics, located in seven counseling and specialized service centers, six residential facilities, public schools, two county departments of human services, in homes and foster homes, and at other community locations.
