A local counseling center received a boost Tuesday that will help fund several important programs.
The FSA Counseling Center received a $5,100 grant from “Guys Who Give”.
The center will use the money to help provide services including the “Batterer’ s Intervention Program” and supervised release for children.
Officials at the center said the money will help them continue their mission, which is to provide affordable counseling to people in the Wabash Valley.
“Mental health counseling is something that now people aren’t stigmatized that it’s something to be ashamed of,” said FSA board president Dave Collins. “We all need counseling at various times in our lives, I think, and to come here, where you can come to a place that’s gentle, kind and cares about you in a setting that can help you with your problems.”
“Guys who Give” provides grants to local charities on a quarterly basis.
