Mission Statement

Compassion Counseling Center provides affordable mental health counseling for all persons, regardless of age, background, ethnicity, gender,

Description

A promising, talented, kind young woman in our community committed suicide immediately prior to beginning her career as a college freshman in the summer of 2013. Our community was shocked. As the community pondered how they missed her inner turmoil, one of the local churches in our community wanted to help prevent this from ever occurring again. From this tragic event, Compassion Counseling Center, Inc., a separate 501(c)(3) was started at the church to offer counseling support to anyone who asked for their services. The center charges clients according to a sliding-scale based on household income and household size. The center utilizes students completing their final requirements for a counseling master's degree from area universities and are supervised by both Compassion's Executive Director and a university supervisor. Compassion began seeing clients on January 15, 2015 and in the first 9 months of operation provided over 650 hours of counseling for men, women, couples, families, teens and children.
