Welcome to LEVOC Family Services

LEVOC provides evidence-based, trauma-informed, culturally sensitive and person-centered clinical services. LEVOC is driven by our vision to offer hope to every individual that includes help to overcome obstacles hindering their growth and success; optimism that change is possible and obtainable; plan to achieve established goals and encouragement to never give up (HOPE). LEVOC provides individuals with the tools and resources needed to achieve and maintain stability in their homes and communities. LEVOC’s motto is simply Client Needs Come First! Our staff genuinely care about those we serve.  LEVOC is also a great place to work and we are always hiring providers with a strong work ethic, positive attitude and a desire to learn and grow in the mental health profession.  Please contact us if you or a family member need mental health services or if you are interested in employment with LEVOC.
