2023 Community Impact Report

HOPE is a strategy. Without it, we give in, give up, and believe this world is good enough for our kids.

In a world where uncertainties loom large, our commitment to safety, connection, and protection has never been more crucial. We know that safety is not just a physical state, but also a sense of emotional security that every child deserves to feel. Through science-backed yet compassionate programs and initiatives, we create environments where children feel seen, heard, and valued — where they can thrive without fear.

Positive connection is the core of our work.

We recognize that healing cannot occur in isolation, and that genuine human connections hold the power to uplift and transform lives at every stage and age. By fostering meaningful relationships and positive experiences with those we serve, we not only provide support, but instill traits of belonging and resilience that can see them through life’s many challenges.

The Strategy Behind Our Vision

Our Strategic Plan

A plan is pointless without profound purpose and a bold drive to succeed. As we begin our new three-year strategic plan, we intentionally set a vision that is brilliant, challenging, and a test of our mission and character.

This plan is informed and designed by the diverse needs and views of our people: the Center for Child Counseling board, leadership, therapists, staff, administrators, funding partners – and most importantly, the children and families we serve – because there is no vision attained without the inclusion and ownership of each contributing member.

This plan looks to the sun as a representation of our vision: a force of illumination that shows the way, with each beam and ray joining to create a bright center of light, warmth, and healing we all come to share. Read it now.

Our Core Values

Center for Child Counseling is committed to using a trauma-informed equity lens in all aspects of our work and services. We also endorse the Diversity-Informed Tenets developed by the Irving Harris Foundation.
