New Year News from HHCD

From Healing Hearts for Community Development

Dear Friends, http://celiac-disease.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/tiled-gallery/tiled-gallery/tiled-gallery-rectangular.php

As I saw the answer to a popular game show puzzle last night, “It’s the Best Time of the Year,” I could not help but think that it truly is.  As we celebrate Christmas and the birthday of our Savior, I am reminded of how truly blessed we are.

As 2015 comes to a close, we reflect on the wonderful year that HHCD has had! We’ve reached out to the people in our community to bring help, hope, and healing that the Lord wants for their lives.  Here are a few highlights of our work:

  • Providing counseling for hundreds of children, adolescents, and adults
  • Bringing addiction treatment and trauma counseling to the homeless men and women at the New Orleans Mission
  • Healing marriages through emotional focused therapy
  • Teaching drug prevention classes to over a thousand children
  • Facilitating support groups in public schools for students who have made unwise choices
As we move into 2016, we are excited to be reaching into the Central City area of New Orleans as we partner with New Hope Baptist Church to bring substance abuse treatment and trauma counseling to the people of that community.

We are also happy to be working with the Celebration Church Life Transformation Center to provide youth activities in the days ahead.

Since this is the Season of Giving, and if God so leads you, HHCD would greatly appreciate a year-end, tax deductible donation to help us continue doing the work that the Lord has called us to do.  Just go to HealingHeartsNola.org to donate.

Wishing you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Dear Friends, treatment

As we enter 2016 and embark upon a new year, treat HHCD is excited to see the plans that God has for the work that He has called us to do.

Our counselors and staff at the Celebration Hope Center find themselves knee deep in the implementation of our first electronic healthLogo_LockUp_Final_FullColor records (EHR) system.  We have contracted with DrCloud Healthcare Solutions and have targeted February 1, pilule 2016, as our “Go Live” date.  This system will greatly enhance our ability to file insurance claims with the numerous insurance companies from which we are seeking to become credentialed.

The EHR system will also allow us to capture significant outcome data so that we can prove to the world what we already know–that professional, faith-based counseling works as lives are transformed and real healing takes place!

Our addictions program is happy to report that our partnership with the Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse for Greater New Orleans has been expanded through a grant which CADA received to provide case management and substance abuse treatment for individuals at risk of becoming HIV positive.

We ask that you continue to pray for HHCD as we move forward in 2016.

Your help and support are always appreciated.

In His Service,
Freddie G. Landry, M.Ed., LPP
