About Us

         Our founding organizations and silent partners, CharlotteO Ministries and the 720 Memorial Foundation with the direction of its co-founders Alfonso Salazar and Megan Dearman, believe that if you want to change the world, start in the heart. The vision of the center is a world where adverse psychological outcomes caused by tragedy, loss, or life-adjustments are understood, governed, and managed, to enrich human well-being and the ability to deal with complexity. The mission of the center is to advance lives through counseling, trainings, workshops, and research for governance and management of societal challenges to secure services and programs for human well-being and resilience for long-term capacity. The center applies and further develops the methodical triumphs of resilience research within practice, IRB policy, and academic training.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀At CORLC we value simplicity, integrity, creativity, and community. We believe people can live more fully when connected to the wonder of genuine care. We meet people right where they are, for who they are, not what they are or what they do.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀We are a community where we  continue to work, learn, play, and rest in celebration of life’s beauty. A place where connections between people, nature, and the arts, are nurtured.
