Abundant Life Christian Fellowship has partnered with Encompass to provide counseling out of our church building. Encompass operates through Christian Children’s Home of Ohio (CCHO) and provides Christ-centered outpatient counseling, home based counseling, foster care and adoption services. With centers in Wooster, Ashland, Massillon and Walton Hills, Encompass offers comprehensive services that are designed to wrap families in a blanket of hope and support. When direction is needed, as it sometimes is in the journey of life, Encompass professionals can be counted on to provide guidance. Gently moving the needle toward the right destination, families can find solace in a new kind of compass.
The terrain of life can get uneven sometimes and may require re-routing. Encompass staff are prepared to stand beside families during this journey.

Comprehensive services are both evidenced-based and tailored to each person. The professional counselors at Encompass provide mental health diagnosis and individual counseling to children and adults. Family and group counseling are also offered from Christian vantage points. Faith and expertise collide to provide a holistic approach to counseling.

We feel using this trauma approach gives our staff the unique perspective and privilege to be able to join in our client’s journey when there is a past full of hurt and pain. Given this approach, our staff can transform from therapist to witnesses. We no longer are able to analyze or judge, but we see the client’s pain from his or her perspective and we become curious observers.
1. Kindness – our encompass professionals delivers compassion throughout the supportive services we provide in our foster care and counseling programs.
