The Family Counseling Center (FCC) is a public, donation-funded agency that provides counseling services to residents of the CSRA, regardless of their ability to pay. The Family Counseling Center was founded in 1979 by a group of concerned citizens, organized by the United Way of the CSRA, who recognized the need for professional counseling services to serve members of the community who could not afford private mental health care and did not qualify for services provided by state agencies. While our organization accepts insurance-based services, approximately 55% of our clients live at, or below, the poverty line and normally have no insurance or inadequate coverage.
The FCC believes in using current, evidenced-influenced research to guide our policy and practice. We understand that therapy is not a one-size-fits-all practice. We are consistently evolving our agency to provide the best care and training to our clients and community. We value a therapeutic approach that treats the whole person, which include one’s mind, body, and spirit. Our therapists are dedicated to working with clients in an individualized and comprehensive approach to accomplish treatment goals established by the client.
We also believe in working closely with community partners to meet the needs of all clients. Our agency has maintained a close relationship with the CSRA Area Agency on Aging which has graciously given out it's Professional In-home Counseling Grant to us since 1981. The Family Counseling Center has also partnered with various non-profit organizations from SafeHomes of Augusta, Friendship Community Center, The American Red Cross, and Child Enrichment.
