Welcome to The Center For Community Counseling

The Center is a non-profit mental health organization that for more than three decades has been a resource for low-income and uninsured adults in Lane County who are in need of mental health services but have no other means of receiving assistance.
Services are offered on a sliding scale based on income.  Some 100 professional volunteers donate nearly 4,000 hours of counseling to clients during an average year.

Among offerings of the CCC are anger management classes, workshops and training on parenting skills, group sessions and classes on managing emotions, short- and long-term counseling for individual adults, and information on and referral to additional mental health and parenting resources.The typical person receiving services at the Center is a single parent supporting two children who is unemployed or underemployed, has an average income of less than $600 per month, and reports having themselves been abused as a child (97 percent of clients).

Counseling center shows value of voluntarism

GUEST VIEWPOINT by Melissa Thomas

As the song says, this is “the most wonderful time of the year” for many of us, with its beautiful lights, good food, family, friends, gifts and the promise of a new year. But there are clients of the Center for Community Counseling who are fighting the winds and rain of depression, anxiety, and flashbacks of childhood abuse and neglect. These people gain resilience through the work they do with our volunteer counselors. It helps them hang on another day.

For 35 years, the CCC has been committed to providing counseling services to low-income, uninsured or underinsured people. We are one of Lane County’s “safety net” agencies. Our dedicated cadre of more than 80 clinicians volunteer their time to serve our clients. In this past year we’ve served 340 clients in 2,927 sessions for an overall donated value of $263,430.
