Our Mission

We change lives and strengthen communities by providing affordable mental health care to people in need.

Our Vision

We envision and work to create empowered communities where mental health care is a right, not a privilege.

Our Values


We value and respect every person, honoring their history, cultural values and community context.


Volunteer counselors and supervisors are at the heart of the Southern California Counseling Center; they are the connection to our client communities.


We provide the highest quality training and education for our volunteer counselors and supervisors, other licensed professionals and individuals in other social service organizations.

Welcoming Environment

Our accessible, supportive environment reduces barriers to participation and to receiving care.


We support our clients as they access the resources required to grow, thrive, and make positive changes in their lives and their communities.


We continuously evaluate and strengthen our programs and services through collaboration among clients, counselors, supervisors, staff and the wider community.
