Charlie's Favorite Angels, Inc. is an organization that enhances the social connection between individuals with behavioral health conditions and their reentering partners or parents. Many people with mental and/or substance use disorders are not fully engaged in their communities. Positive engagements through personal relationships, social events, or civic activities can provide many individuals with a purpose or something they can control a positive outcome because they have an environment that promotes healthy relationships, support, and self-control restrictions set by participants. These methods induce behaviors that counteract any feelings of being socially isolated and excluded. We make sense of the negative perceptions, prejudice, and discrimination that contribute to the social exclusion of people living with behavioral health disorders. Here at Charlie's Favorite Angels, Inc., we encourage people to take responsibility by empowering all members of a family that want to play a positive role in preparing our youth to excel within their communities and families. As a member of Just LeadershipUSA, Inc. we advocate for fair and effective criminal and juvenile justice policies. We invest in successful formerly incarcerated leaders from across the US. We also engage a national membership to serve as a base for reform. We believe that the most compelling advocates of change are those who have been directly affected by incarceration. Those closest to the problem are closest to the solution, but furthest from resources and power.
People living with a combination of these conditions can increase social connections greatly when they have access to recovery-oriented services and establish positive relationships with family and friends. Greater social connections lead to improved economic, educational, recreational, and cultural opportunities that are generally available. Becoming an Angel to someone is a prestigious title and our staff, clients, and supporters all believe in empowering leaders.
Charlie’s Favorite Angels, Inc. assists our clients with the process of establishing and achieving personal and professional goals. Coaching is more focused on building upon strengths, while counseling has an emphasis on bringing healing to emotional and relational struggles. The key to successful coaching work is finding a coach that is not only knowledgeable in life issues, but is also qualified to address emotional health issues when they arise. Your emotional, physical and spiritual health has a direct impact on your personal and professional relationships and successes. Our many years of “unlawful” experience and our team’s mental health counseling expertise, make us uniquely qualified to offer a complete and well-balanced professional and personal coaching experience.
One-on-one life coaching requires commitment from both sides. It does not happen overnight, but over an extended period of time, usually weeks to months. In the initial interview, the coach and the client review goals and a desired way of living. Then a schedule is created that outlines a possible for timeframe for success. I’ll be honest with you: one-on-one life coaching isn’t for everyone. It’s hard, soul-searching work with another human being that will guide you in making yourself uncomfortable enough to make the changes you really want. It can be costly, but if you could do it on your own one day….the value in that is priceless! If you’re concerned about either of these aspects, don’t worry: we also offer an more anonymous, cost-effective alternative!
