  •   +      Mission

    Baymeadows Center for Hope & Healing, Inc. is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to providing education, counseling, life-coaching, and mentoring to persons needing emotional, social/relational, developmental, and/or spiritual support, as well as assisting other organizations to develop similar programs through educational and consulting activities.

  •   +      Vision

    To serve as a mission dedicated to ensuring that anyone needing help, regardless of their ability to pay, would have available to them the services of counselors and clinicians who are committed to being quality Christian helpers in their area of practice.


    To be a supportive extension of the local church, providing the helps that the church struggles to provide based on time restrictions, expertise, and member apprehension.


    To provide life coaching services to those who have committed to change in their lives and need a helping Christian hand as they endeavor to reach their goals.



We are one ministry with a multi-missional approach to Hope & Healing. The diversity of our ministry is actually a very natural aspect of a Christ-centered concept of soul care, in that our scope of social services care is focused on only one point of attention - the care of all of God's people.
