Welcome to Amara Wellness (then called Person Centered Partnerships)

was “birthed” right here in Mecklenburg County back in 2001 when two women decided to start their own Non-Profit company to serve those with developmental disabilities and Thomas S clients. The first services were provided on January 1, 2002 and included Residential Supports, Group Homes, AFLs, and Independent Living Services. The company started out in a small 3 bedroom house on Monroe Avenue and served 27 consumers.

The company remained small for the first couple of years and then added CBI (Client Behavioral Intervention services) with the Mecklenburg County Area Mental Health Center in 2003. Later that same year Mecklenburg County added the Friendship Club. These services included working with individuals with a serious mental illness by providing and teaching daily living skills.
