The Because Counseling Matters Annual Fund provides essential support for Nick Finnegan Counseling Center. Donations to this fund help us reduce the stigma of mental health counseling and guarantee that counseling services, outreach programs, professional trainings, and support groups are affordable and easily accessible.

The generosity of our friends and donors helps advocate for mental health counseling and funds Nick Finnegan Counseling Center’s ability to provide:

  • Over 8,100 counseling sessions held in-person and via telehealth to 735 clients in 2021.
  • Expanded community outreach including a brand-new podcast and 15 affordable talks and trainings to schools, businesses, and other organizations in our community.

An investment in the Because Counseling Matters Annual Fund is an investment in the health and mental well-being of the Houston community today and into the future. A gift of any size goes a long way in advocating for mental health care. We are grateful for your support and help in making sure that everyone can access quality mental health care, because counseling matters.
