We are the "Fresno Family!" 

Fresno Family Counseling Center (FFCC) was founded in 1985 as as a community-based counseling center and outreach project sponsored by the Kremen School of Education and Human Development. FFCC has been offering therapy to the Fresno area community for over three decades while providing exceptional clinical training to graduate level counselors in Fresno State's Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling program. FFCC provides thousands of hours of low-cost counseling to underserved children and families in our community who often lack the financial resources to access traditional mental health services. Without FFCC, many in our community would go without these critical services.

 

The dollars raised will be used to replace the critical technology used by FFCC to provide intensive supervision and training to our graduate student counselors.  This technology is critical to the preparation of our community's future mental health professionals.  The replacement of existing technology will also assure that FFCC will continue to provide quality care for those seeking our services.  Funding will support up-grades and replacement of cameras, microphones, television monitors, recording system, and software that has become outdated and unable to be repaired. Your gifts will assure a continuation of critical mental health services in our community and support the preparation of future counselors/therapists for our Central Valley region.
