The Family Counseling Center of the CSRA
"Strong Community Partnership"
The Family Counseling Center is a private, non-profit, non-sectarian agency that provides professional counseling services to retired and active service members and residents of the CSRA regardless of their ability to pay. The Family Counseling Center (FCC) 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.
Since those early days FCC has been a strong partner with the United Way. The Family Counseling Center has also 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.
In 2009 the Family Counseling Center moved to it's current location in Martinez, GA to better place itself to support all of the CSRA community. The Family Counseling Center has always maintained an identity as a Social Work mental health practice. Our counselors have predominantly been Licensed Clinical Social Workers with a vast amounts of experience in dealing with the many struggles that individuals, couples and families deal with every day.
Our dedicated staff and counselors have always put the needs of the community first. While our organization accepts insurance based services, 55% of our clients live at or below the poverty line, normally having no insurance or inadequate coverage. The majority of those receiving our non-insurance services are women, over half of which have children. These services are essential to the community and serve to shore up the already strained mental health resources of our community.
