September 1st, 2003 is the founding day of the Eve Center. Cinny Roy had a notebook full of materials, a lap top and cell phone. There was no office, no board, no volunteers. Yet Cinny knew there had to be a way to train volunteers to be paraprofessional peer counselors to other women. Likewise in 2008, the vision to train volunteers to be paraprofessional peer counselors to other men inspired our founder to begin the Adam Center. Toward the end of 2008 the Adam Center had a small group of men that were trained peer counselors and training other men to become peer counselors. There were men who come by the dozens to receive counseling and were seen at the shared location on the west side of Cincinnati as well as the northern part of Cincinnati. We currently serve adult men from ages 18 the come to us for many of these reasons.
Abuse: physical, emotional, sexual, rape, spiritual
Boundaries and life style choices
Childlessness: infertility, adoption
Death: Wife, child, parent, close friend
Fears and phobias
Jail: families of inmates, inmate before and after release
Illness and disability: long term or terminal
Long term woundedness from childhood
Parenting: small children, teenagers, empty nest, single parenting, older parent
Relationships: Wife, parent, partner, children, co-worker, friends

Many other issues men face
Since 2008 the Adam Center has grown from a hand full of like minded men wanting to share the same vision of helping other men by the means of paraprofessional peer counseling to a few hundred men that have either received peer counseling or are peer counselors.
The Adam Center is an organization of Christian men committed to promoting emotional, spiritual and relational healing for adult men. This is provided in a safe, confidential environment, at no cost to the client, through one on one peer counseling program, recovery groups, book studies, resource library, and Volunteer Peer Counseling Education.
