Center for Human Services

The mission of the Center for Human Services is to assist individuals, families, professionals, and organizations in the region to improve the human condition. This assistance can be in the form of providing direct services, disseminating relevant information, developing programs through research endeavors, educating constituents and community organizations, and promoting the welfare of individuals by educating the general public with regard to issues that impact the welfare of individuals.

Programs within the Center for Human Services include:

Center for READing (Research, Evaluation and Awareness of Dyslexia)

The research generated at the Center for READing will help guide potential changes in assessment and intervention tools and will be submitted for publication in peer-reviewed journals for dissemination to further the scientific literature. Presentations at conferences will also lead to further dissemination of the work of the Center.

The Center will create relationships with families, educators, administrators and other professionals in the community and will provide highly professional and evidenced-based assessments and interventions to increase literacy.

Truancy Diversion Program

The Truancy Diversion Program was developed in 1983 by the Well Community Council, working together with Pittsburg State University, as an outreach to the Pittsburg community and surrounding communities in Crawford County. In the last 18 years, over 89% of the families involved in the Truancy Diversion Program have been successful at keeping their children in school. This program emphasizes the need for the school, family, law enforcement, and counseling agencies to work together in order to keep the truant student in school.
