Let's Talk Ministries


We offer Free Substance Use Disorder & Crises Counseling Services to those who are Financially, Economically and Socially Disadvantaged.

Let's Talk Ministries is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that offers free counseling services and referrals for those suffering from illicit substance use, drug and alcohol addiction as well as issues of domestic violence, codependency, post traumatic stress disorder and all other counseling as it relates to behavioral health and wellness. We also provide individual, group, premarital and marriage enrichment counseling with emphasis on Biblical Principles.

Our youth and young adults' specialty unit offers specialized services to the younger population with a focus on providing crisis intervention, individual and group counseling in homes, schools and church venues. This specialized dialogue and interaction with inclusion of our viable referral system, equips our youth,who are facing various challenges, with positive and productive alternatives rather than self-destructive behavior.

Let’s Talk Ministries also provides services in the State of California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation prisons for both men and women. We provide inmates a safe space for self examination parallel with biblical precepts by utilizing constructive motivation.

We freely counsel those who are financially and economically disadvantaged. Through encouragement and motivation towards enhancing our client's effectiveness and positive coping skills, we emphasize the following:

  • Facilitating behavior change.

  • Improving the client's ability to establish and maintain relationships.

  • Promoting the decision-making process and facilitating client potential.

  • Positive Development.

We find that talking about struggles within a confidential setting can be very effective in combating the feelings of social isolation that most people encounter while in their addiction or attempting to integrate back into society after incarceration or displacement due to addiction or other behavioral set backs.

Becoming a client of Let's Talk Ministries is an excellent way to gain a sense of connection to community and gain access to a support system that will be vital to the success of your recovery, relationships and personal development.
