The BIA exists to help every resident in Broadmoor thrive. We provide affordable counseling and social services for all income levels, and no one is denied services based on inability to pay. In addition to our wellness programs, we offer continuing education workshops for social workers and licensed therapists. 

We offer counseling to individuals and couples on a sliding-fee scale. Fees range between $10-$80 per 50-minute session and are dependent on your income and the level of your counselor's training. Therapy fees for couples with a Licensed Social Worker/Counselor range between $40-$120. For more information about our fee structure and considerations for what to pay, click here.
We provide help in addressing situations that cause emotional stress such as anxiety, depression, family and relationship issues, divorce, job stress, social and emotional difficulties related to disability and illness, life transitions, and loss of a loved one or pet. We are not a crisis agency and we do not provide crisis services.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS

Broadmoor Improvement Association relies on many dedicated organizations to expand the reach of our services and better meet the needs of the community. In addition to our tenants and members at the Arts & Wellness Center, we leverage partnerships with churches, schools, and other nonprofits to meet Broadmoorians where they're at. Take a look at a few of our key partners.

Volunteers help grow fresh herbs, vegetables, and fruit that is made available to guests at the food pantry.
