A note from our Executive Director
Opening our doors to the community
The Family Counseling Center often feels like a “best kept secret.” Our work is done behind closed doors in therapy and counseling sessions, our work is deeply personal and private – so we can understand that many people don’t necessarily speak about their experiences with us.
In 2021, we worked with over 4,500 clients from not just Fulton and Montgomery counties, but in many of our surrounding counties as well. We had over 134,000 client contacts in 2021 – that’s more than 11,000 per month! The numbers are astounding, they tell the story of the impact our work has in the lives of individuals and families.
This year, we are opening our doors to more and more members of the community – business partners, neighboring organizations, and others – in order to spread the word about who we are, what we do, and why, after more than 46 years, our core values are the same.
We are inviting you to join us on Thursday, March 16th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. as we partner with the Fulton-Montgomery Chamber of Commerce for their Business Afterhours.
Our impacts and successes are directly connected to your donations, advocacy, and partnership. Thank you.
February was a time for visits and sharing our story
The Family Counseling Center of Fulton County had a busy February! In the past month we have welcomed representatives from the New York State Office for Mental Health, the local Chamber of Commerce, news stations and more.
Helping youth in need
The Family Counseling Center is highlighting the work of its Mobile Crisis Unit, a service provided to Fulton County Schools when children are expressing moments of extreme crisis – from suicidal thoughts to aggressive behavior that puts either the child or others at risk.
Your donations are greatly appreciated
We are currently trying to raise $3,000 to start a Girl’s Circle program – a group therapy model that brings girls aged 9 to 18 together in order to share, grow, and become empowered.
