Statements
Mission The Christian Counseling & Family Life Center (CCC) is a nonprofit organization that provides a professional, compassionate and peaceful environment to meet the emotional, spiritual and mental health needs of individuals, couples and families so that they can overcome crisis and to achieve their fullest potential. 
Background The Christian Counseling and Family Life Center has been serving the needs of our community for over 30 years.  We are an independent, nonprofit 501c3 organization governed by a Board of Directors.  Our staff consists of Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Psychiatrist/Medical Director and Nurse Practitioners (APRN). 
Impact
In 2012, CCC provided more than 6,000 hours of direct service to individuals, couples and families. We incorporate a multidisciplinary approach to mental health, providing counseling, psychiatric evaluations and ongoing medical management. We offer a group therapy service for adolescents in the community to provide support and resources specific to their needs.
 
Our goals for the coming year include expansion of our group therapy offerings, specifically to initiate a Dialectical and Behavioral Therapy (DBT) group for adolescents and young adults. To continue to provide quality services to those who have financial strains and/or the uninsured of our community.
 
Needs In order to continue to fulfill our mission, we need monetary donations to help bridge the gap in costs for services to those who are under-insured or uninsured.  Many patients come to us seeking treatment who have the burden of high deductibles or recent job losses resulting in no insurance coverage.  There are those who wish to participate in group therapy for adolescents/young adults who can not afford to do so.  We would like to create a hardship fund to be able to provide services to these individuals regardless of their financial situation or insurance status. 
CEO Statement The Christian Counseling and Family Life Center provides mental health services to individuals, couples and families.  We treat a wide range of mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, Bipolar disorder and substance abuse.  We operate from a multidisciplinary approach, offering counseling services, psychiatric evaluations and ongoing medical management.  Our staff is highly trained, licensed professionals with various specializations in the mental health field. 
Board Chair Statement As the Center celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2012, we could not have imagined to what degree we would be called upon to fulfill our founding mission.  The Center has served as an earthen vessel.  Its treasure remains the spiritual relationship and compassion that it offers to others in need.  Our clinicians, staff and Board members continue to work cooperatively to fulfill this mission and to serve the clinical needs of the community.  The board is committed to seeking new membership and financial resources that will promote growth and sustainability.
