Do you wonder how a local counseling agency could provide services for over 150 years? In 1862, Chauncey Rose donated $500 to provide social services to Civil War widows and their children. Thus began the agency that would eventually become FSA Counseling Center. For the last thirty years, FSA Counseling Center, a United Way agency, has been a full range counseling center providing therapy and life skills services to children, adults and families. We provide a variety of services to address behavioral health needs. Last year alone, we provided services to 1300 individuals in the community. Many of these individuals would not have received services without our assistance. The majority of those receiving our services, (53%) reside in households earning less than the median household income for Indiana. The largest group of clients served (31%) live in households with a single parent and children.
Does it break your heart to think of a child living in a home with violence and fear? Survivors of domestic violence include adults and children. Many seek our specialized services. We also provide the only certified program in the area for individuals that perpetrate domestic violence. This destructive cycle can only be stopped with your help!
