Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Jim Ward, State Director for Tennessee with Ascent Health, Inc., who shares some of the history for the nonprofit organization that was established in 2012 and has grown to provide services in three different communities, including Memphis, Tennessee. During the interview, Jim talks about their model and how they come alongside families, both youth and adults, providing care management, access to therapists, crisis response and support. He discusses their collaborative efforts and their work with schools, their home and clinic services, success stories, how the community can help, and more.
We are driven by the many needs of the children and teenagers in Louisiana. Our passion to see families break cycles, move from conflict into unity, and turn hopelessness into empowerment has led many of our clients to improve their situations significantly.
