We provide programming for regular group meetings and counseling for the special needs of individuals or groups as they occur.

Roots of Health also provides workshops and special programming for adolescent girls, nursing students and high school teachers, again with the aim of empowering women and girls to make responsible decisions and take responsibility for themselves and each other.
