As mental health professionals of color in Fort Wayne, Janell and Aaron saw the urgent need for culturally competent mental health services in the city - services designed for people of color and, specifically, the Southeast neighborhoods where our co-founders grew up. So, they did not shy away from being a part of needed change.
Courageous Healing operated virtually for its first year as it met pressing needs Aaron and Janell saw in the community. On May 15, 2021 at 2013 South Anthony Blvd. in Fort Wayne, IN, a physical location opened to give communities of color a space to heal and thrive. Courageous Healing’s team continuously strives to align services with the challenges BIPOC community members experience and meet clients where they are at.
