Cen-Clear was established in 1980 to provide Head Start services in Centre and Clearfield counties. It has worked closely with local school districts and communities ever since to ensure that pre-school is available to as many children as possible.
Cen-Clear realized all the issues children faced in pre-school couldn’t be resolved in a classroom setting. At the time, there were limited options for young children in need of mental health services so Cen-Clear began offering mental health services to all ages.
Mental health issues sometimes lead to drug and alcohol issues so it began offering these services, as well.
Today, Cen-Clear offers mental health services to children, adolescents and adults in 12 counties and drug and alcohol services in four counties. Cen-Clear’s administrative office is located in Bigler, Clearfield County.
