In late 2012, Ascension rescued the Stillwater Family Resource Center as its parent organization closed, and kept its client advocacy services available to existing clients. The church then re-invisioned the program, named it Ascend, and improved and enhanced the services.
In January 2016, the church partnered with Valley Outreach to transition the client services of Ascend to a more integrative social service model. On August 1, 2016 these client services officially became part of Valley Outreach’s offering and Ascend closed. With more office space, additional services, and licensed staff, Valley Outreach will significantly expand the services and number of clients served by the program.
