"As an Educator and Academic Advisor for Native American elementary students for the past two years, I have witnessed first hand how our children's physical and mental health issues in some cases are in need of extended supportive care. The HIR Wellness Center would be the perfect place to receive the specialized, quality care that they deserve. Knowing the people at HIR Wellness Center, I can rest assured that our children's needs and goals will be obtained."
