“Forward House is my refuge, my second home, and it feels like you are with family. Everyone is accepted and not judged. It helps me with my social anxiety and gives me things to do that I wouldn’t normally do having no car. Going as a group is more fun than being alone.” (FH client)

 

“Forward House is a place to assist and enrich the life of someone who has a mental issue. Forward House has enriched my life and comforted me during times of anxiety and depression.” (FH client)
