Once upon a time I had a dream. A dream that would allow others to visit a place where they can nurture and heal their mind, body, and soul. To be able to provide a comforting space with diverse healing modalities from an array of talented and committed professionals.

A sense of community where people come and can receive tender loving care. A safe space where people can take the time to do something loving for themselves.

A place that someone can call “home”.

Once upon a time I had a dream. Now this dream is a reality.

A reality that is called ” The Temperance Center”

We hope to be serving the community for many many years to come!
