Hi <<First Name>>,
On January 1st, 2017, Agape Christian Counseling Services will be 10 years old! We have been reflecting and we are in awe of all that God has done through this organization. When our Executive Director, Darrell Provinse, founded the agency on January 1st, 2007, there was just one office location and two other counselors working with him. Today, we have 9 locations and 40 counselors. We have been privileged to journey alongside roughly 27,000 clients as they work toward healing from depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief, relationship struggles, parenting struggles, OCD, trauma, and many other issues.
For those of our clients who struggle financially, we offer pro-bono and deeply discounted services. Many of you may not know that when we do this, neither the agency, nor our contracted counselors, are reimbursed the difference. We do not receive funding or grants from the government, as some non-profits do, and have only received a handful of small private grants. In the last several years, we have given away nearly $2 million per year in pro-bono and discounted services. We do this because we are passionate about the importance of mental health and we have made it our mission to help make services accessible to anyone who needs it.
Our Scholarship Fund helps us cover the cost of counseling sessions for clients who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford the help that they need. In order to continue serving and helping as many people as we can, we must rely on donations from our supporters, like you. As you are deciding where to do your year end giving, please consider giving the gift of mental health and healing. You can donate online by clicking the button below. It only takes a few seconds. Every amount, large or small, makes a difference!
We thank you, friends, for your continued support, and we wish you a very blessed new year!
