Since 1877, FCS has grown into an organization that people know and trust. We are committed to serving families despite changes in public funding and private insurance.
As one of our clients recently told us: “For the first time, I can say that I feel a place of inner confidence developing that will serve me the rest of my life. Because of generous people that provide donations to FCS, people like me are able to receive the important help we need to carry on with our lives. In a very real sense, you are sitting beside us in our sessions as we do the hard work of healing. Thank you.”
Family Counseling Services is thankful for the support of our communities. We would like to thank the following foundations for their generous support that allows us to fulfill our mission of providing affordable, accessible and timely counseling and therapy services to our communities:
Community Foundation of Boone County – $2,000. These funds will allow Family Counseling Services to continue to provide counseling services to those who would otherwise not be able to afford them.
Community Foundation of Northern Illinois – $3200. These funds allowed Family Counseling Services to purchase 8 laptop computers and 2 computer towers to replace outdated computer equipment.
Kjellstrom Foundation – $8,000. The Kjellstrom Foundation’s grant will allow Family Counseling Services to be able to provide more services to those who cannot afford to have services elsewhere through our sliding fee scale program.
The heart of our service is to help people feel better, function more effectively and get more out of life; but often, the programs and services offered are not funded through federal and state dollars. To provide professional counseling services at the minimum fee of $22 per hour is a difficult challenge without the support and help of community partners.
We hope that you will become one of our partners by making a tax-deductible contribution. We are certain your gift will make a difference not only in a single life, but in the health of our entire community.
