About Us

Welcome to Issues of Life, Incorporated!

Our Mission:
Our mission is to eradicate the stigma of counselors while empowering, educating, and equipping others on how to tackle their issues of life. We accomplish this mission by providing small support groups, workshops, and life counseling that tear down toxic beliefs.

Our Vision:
Our vision is to provide a place of counsel which attends to the needs of a whole person: body, soul, and spirit. If a person is hungry or lacking resources, we feed and provide them. If a person is mentally, socially, or emotionally hurting, we counsel them. If a person desires spiritual and personal growth, we teach them.

Our Values:
To serve.
To love.
To empower.
To be the change we want to see in our community.

“Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23
