About Us

ElRod Center is a 501c3, faith-based, holistic mental health center for youth & their families. We utilize artistic expression and therapeutic intervention to address youth suicide and mental health. Our goal is to help equip the next generation with self care tools to face society with resiliency. We want our youth to be engaged, equipped and empowered!


ElRod Center was founded in July 2017 on the faith-based principles of loving everyone for who they are and where they’re at, free from judgment or criticism. We are dedicated to helping youth achieve functional wellness through creative, innovative, and research-based methods. Our purpose is to promote recovery, resiliency, wellness, independence and safety for individuals receiving mental health services and support. Standards for services and support are person directed, youth guided, family driven, culturally competent, trauma & wellness informed, and promote functional and rehabilitative outcomes for individuals that are developmentally appropriate.

We are dedicated to providing a safe and inclusive space where our community members can learn to navigate life’s challenges, thrive and achieve functional wellness. At ElRod Center, we are committed to meeting the unique needs of each client and family and we are committed to fostering an environment of acceptance, compassion and growth.
