Peer counselors are caring and skilled individuals who want to offer support to others who are experiencing many of the same emotions and situations that they have experienced. NFRC Peer Counselors are three time winners of the Howard County Volunteer Awards. They volunteer in NFRC group therapy programs, co-parent education programs and NFRC trainings.
Both children and adults who have been NFRC clients are trained by NFRC staff as peer counselors in order to be helpful and supportive to other youngsters and adults. Because they experienced a significant change within their own families, and have experienced our counseling services first-hand, NFRC peer counselors provide a support system for children who are faced with the pain and confusion associated with separation and divorce.
