Why we need your help

EMAGES is a private Not-For-Profit Organization dedicated to serving and educating our clients with the tools and knowledge to live a productive and healthy life style. However, the majority of our clients encounter a barrier in getting to our office to seek treatment. Not only are we asking donations for transportation for clients to and from treatment, we are also in need of refreshments, publications for client awareness, workbooks, journals and office supplies so that we can better serve our clients. No donation is too small your help is need to support our mission.

Thank you in Advance,

Founder & CEO

 Hattie Wash, Psy. D.
