Giving Back for a Mentally Healthy Community
I had the unique opportunity to give back to a local non-profit Christian counseling center 5 years ago by volunteering in the office. My husband and I had attended marriage counseling 5 years prior and counseling is something I truly believe in. After volunteering, I began giving to the agency both financially and with my time. My volunteer time made me painfully aware of how many children are in the CPS system and soon we were adopting a little 2 1/2 year old from a hard place. We are a military family and this organization sees many veterans. My mother also attending counseling on a sliding scale payment plan when I was a teenager. Marriages, families, and children are all things I am passionate about. I continue giving time and funds to Counseling Connections for Change, Inc. because it is a non-profit I believe in. I actively promote mental health awareness and am inspired when I hear the stories of individuals. families, and children getting hope and lives being forever changed because of the services this agency provides. Mentally healthy individuals means less crime, abuse, and suicide in my community.
Review from #MyGivingStory
I have been a volunteer and am currently a Board Member of this organization.
The mission of Counseling Connections for Change, Inc. is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy individuals, relationships, and community. It is the only non-profit Christian counseling center in Brazoria County. The main purpose of the organization is to Treat, Educate, and Collaborate. The staff at Counseling Connections continually meets its mission and purpose. Client feedback confirms that lives are being changed and relationships are being restored. God can bring healing and peace to all!
Services offered are Counseling Services
Individual, Couples & Family, Relationship Issues, Grief and Loss, Anxiety and Fears, Depression, Personal Growth, Parenting Support, and Stress Management
The greatest desire of Counseling Connections is to provide counseling and healthy relationship training to its clients without the burden of financial constraints. Many in Brazoria County are without healthcare benefits or receive state funded benefits, which creates an expense shortage between benefit reimbursement rates and operating costs. Counseling Connections relies on the generous contributions of those in the community to help continue to meet the needs of its clients.
