“I lost my job, my home and custody of my kids.
…Drugs were my only relief and gang life was my only protection. When Southern California Counseling Center found me, my life changed forever.
My counselor never judged me. She knew what life in the streets was like and believed in me. We got my kids back. Now my family and I are together and thriving. Not only did I find mental health care that I could afford but I found a place to finally call home.
Currently, I’m training to become a counselor at SCCC to help others who are experiencing trauma. I’m so grateful that this organization gave me a second chance at life and I’m going to make the best out of it.”
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.
