We invite you to join us and help change a life. A life like Don’s… 

Our independence relies on you.

We believe that mental health care is a right, not a privilege.  That’s why we do what few counseling centers can:  provide unlimited access to counseling on a sliding scale basis.

Our volunteer model allows us to operate solely on client fees, foundation grants and support from donors like you. We are completely independent of government funding and insurance payments, so there is no agency or insurance company prescribing care, limiting sessions or creating paperwork.

Client fees do not cover our operating expenses. We count on individual donors and foundations to close the gap.   We cannot do this without your support.  Help close the funding gap and change a life

   Join SCCC’s Circle of Friends

Circle of Friends is a legacy club modeled after the original “SCCC Friends” – a dedicated, passionate group of people committed to ensuring the future of affordable mental health services at SCCC. In 1982, The Friends fundraised for and paid off the mortgage of our building. In their passing, we received gifts from their estates re-emphasizing their commitment to sustaining our mission. The last original “Friend” passed away in 2014, though shared with us her wish that we create more Friends. We invite you to join their lineage of generosity by becoming a 21st century Circle of Friends member by naming the Southern California Counseling Center in your will or estate plan.

For more information, please call Gail Wilburn, SCCC Executive Director at 323-937-1344 or email to [email protected].
