Guidance and Counseling

In our efforts to foster healthy relationships through the means of education, training, and screening all adults who have regular access to children, youth and vulnerable adults within the Diocese of San Jose for the purpose of preventing harm, we know there will always be a need for ongoing resources to support survivors as well as resources for those looking for help.
