Why Give? Your gift provides hope and healing for individuals and families seeking to find effective ways to work through their problems and to learn how to make positive improvements in their life. Approximately 40% of our clients rely on our generous sliding scale fee to obtain the professional counseling and the educational help they need. Through the generosity of individual, corporate, and foundation support we are able to help individuals and families experiencing financial hardship and/or those with inadequate mental health insurance coverage. We have not turned anyone away because they could not afford the cost of counseling and/or tutoring. We need your generous gifts to continue providing hope and healing to those individuals and families throughout our community.
We stretch every dollar we receive. Your donation of in-kind gifts can help us cut operating expenses.
