About the Fund
Center for Child Counseling is building the foundation for playful, healthful, and hopeful living for children, families, and communities.
Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health has been the foundation of Center for Child Counseling’s mission since being founded in 1999. Services for children birth through age 18 focus on preventing and healing the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), toxic stress, and trauma on children while promoting resiliency and encouraging healthy family, school, and community relationships. For twenty-two years Center for Child Counseling has been moving forward innovation, education, and positive change for the most vulnerable babies, children, and adolescents. At the core of Center for Child Counseling’s work is reducing barriers and disparities to accessing quality care while building trusting, safe, and nurturing relationships and environments to promote each individual’s capacity to heal, grow and thrive.
Through co-location in the communities served, programming aims to stop the intergenerational cycle of abuse and violence; prevent mental and physical health concerns that may develop as a result of ACEs and trauma; eliminate racial and ethnic barriers to accessing quality behavioral health, early intervention and treatment; and building awareness and the capacity of each community to address ACEs in a trauma-informed approach.
