Healings Society are happy to offer our ministry as a safe haven for this wonderful
program. We offer a program backed by the real value of our ministry and the power of
our co-op to deliver what you need in the way of Financial Responsibility,
                                 NOT INSURANCE.
We have put together many programs to benefit those like-minded beings in the world
of today. Please take a close look at what we have to offer you and yours truly, and don’t
