Charity Care

The Sophia Center offers counseling and testing to uninsured and underinsured families and individuals who are in crisis. Sr. Rachel Nijakowski, PhD, founded Sophia Center in 1991 to make quality mental health services more accessible for those in need.

The demand is great and the funds are limited. Sophia Center accepts most insurance but continues to afford services to families regardless of finances.
