Sometimes we forget how hard life can be if you’re constantly fighting with your spouse, struggling with an addiction, or overcome by grief at the loss of a loved one. Sometimes we also forget the joy we feel when we know a family member is safe, prospering, and leading a healthy and happy life.
Last year Family Service Counseling worked with over 1,200 local families to overcome a variety of mental health issues. With your help together we can save marriages, improve parenting skills, overcome addictions, and get people back to leading healthy, fulfilling lives.
With your help we can also get troubled teenagers back on track at school, give a family member the hope they need to get up in the morning after a profound loss, and enable a parent to escape an abusive relationship.
At Family Service Counseling we are a mission driven, nonprofit organization that strives to ensure that no one is turned away for financial reasons. And that’s precisely why we need your help. Even though we have been extremely successful in raising funds from outside our community, we are still facing a shortfall.
We will do whatever we can to continue providing our vital community based, mental health programs but we can’t dothis without you!
