Hope Alive offers a number of groups lead by staff, counselors, and volunteers. Groups cover a variety of topics related to mental health, life skills, and personal and spiritual growth. Groups are free and open to the public. Below is a list of our current groups:

Living Clean: The Journey Continues— This group is about finding a new way to live–the practice of recovery in our daily lives, in our relationships, and in our service to others. It is intended to welcome members new to recovery and to rekindle the passion of those who are in long term recovery. Sundays @ 7:30pm  Facilitator – Char

“Safe People”— Using video teaching by authors Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, we will gain solid guidance for making safe choices in relationships, from friendships to romance. They help identify the nurturing people we all need in our lives, as well as ones we need to learn to avoid. Discover what makes some people relationally safe, and how to avoid unhealthy entanglements. You’ll learn about things within yourself that jeopardize your relational security. And you’ll find out what to do and what not to do to develop a balanced, healthy approach to relationships.  Wednesdays @ 10:00am Facilitator – Dawn

Transforming the Living Legacy of Trauma – This group will help you recover from the effects of trauma. We will make sense of confusing, puzzling, and seemingly shameful symptoms by providing you with ways to recognize the living legacy of traumatic experience affecting day-to-day life and practicing new habits of response. Wednesdays @ 5:30pm Facilitator – Shamika



Our counseling program is staffed by one professionally licensed counselor in addition to multiple masters-level counseling interns. Our interns, having completed the majority of their coursework necessary for obtaining a Master’s Degree in Counseling, Social Work, or a related field, complete clinical practice hours required by their universities and the State of Indiana prior to graduation and licensure. Our interns meet with our licensed counselor weekly for clinical supervision and support.

If you are interested in Hope Alive’s Internship Program and are pursing a Master’s Degree in Counseling, Social Work, or a related field, we’d love to hear from you! We accept resumes on an ongoing basis. Please contact our clinical supervisor at for more information.
