In addition to the job readiness and assistance with basic life necessities like housing and transportation, we recognize that our clients may need additional support to combat the various challenges they might face trying to navigate society: loss of confidence, discouragement, frustration, confusion about which decision to make when, judgment, or even guilt and shame surrounding their pasts.
The role of a Life Coach is similar to that of an accountability partner. A Life Coach will assist clients who do not have a personal support system, helping them to navigate services within the community while inspiring them to get their “selves” back: self-esteem, self-reliance, and self-worth.
Our training is designed to foster safe interactions and to maintain appropriate boundaries that support a healthy relationship between clients and coaches.
