Crack ’em for a Cause
In light of the CDC’s recommendation regarding COVID-19 and limiting gatherings of people for the next few weeks, we will unfortunately be cancelling the 10th Annual Crawfish Boil this year. As much as this saddens us, our top priority is to put the health and safety of our supporters and community first. While our community navigates this pandemic, we are dedicated to providing mental health services when it is needed most. During a time of crisis, mental health services are even more critical, which is why NFCC remains open and we have created a new telehealth option for clients who cannot attend an in-person counseling session. Our goal is to continue to uphold our mission by supporting the mental health and well-being of our clients, while making counseling as accessible as possible.
We need your support now more than ever, and although we will no longer be hosting the Crawfish Boil, we hope you will still choose to donate to the event. Our goal is to raise another $20,000 by April 4th, as NFCC relies heavily on funds from the Crawfish Boil (one of our two major fundraising events) to continue to keep counseling accessible and affordable. We will continue to thank all of our event donors on our website and social media.
We hope you will consider making a donation to support NFCC, as we continue to offer mental healthcare for Houstonians during this time. If you would like any more information on how the Nick Finnegan Counseling Center is continuing to serve our community, please do not hesitate to let us know.
Thanks to fundraisers, donations and grants, we provided nearly 7,400 counseling sessions in 2019 to adults, kids, couples and families! While NFCC client fees only cover a portion of operating expenses each year, the remaining expenses are covered by donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals like you. A counseling session costs NFCC $175, but clients pay no more than $95 because NFCC wants counseling to be affordable. If $95 is too much, NFCC offers sliding-scale fee structures and insurance options. In 2019, NFCC was able to help over 900 clients because of generous donors like you. Our 2019 event raised over $108,000! Thanks to continued support, NFCC is able to offer high quality individualized care with different payment options that meet our clients needs.
