The Fountain Hill Center for Counseling and Consultation has been providing quality, faith-based counseling services to people of Oceana, Mason, Muskegon, and Newaygo counties since 2002 through the Lakeshore Office.
Initially our work began through a partnership with the New Era Reformed Church in an effort to assess and counsel members and friends of that congregation. At that time, we had one therapist who saw clients there about five hours each week. These services have since expanded and we now offer counseling services approximately 30 hours each week and have 3-4 therapists that work out of this office. The therapists that see clients in the New Era office are able to work with individuals, couples, adults, and children dealing with a wide range of issues.
We work with anyone regardless of ability to pay. The generosity of many donors, public and private, provides us with a subsidy fund to help clients who are unable to pay the full fee. The New Era Reformed Church provided the founding support and continues to be very involved today. From the beginning, they have graciously offered us space to meet with clients which significantly reduces our overhead expenses.
Almost since the inception of this program, because of the funding we have received from individual donors, churches, the Oceana Community Foundation, the Gerber Foundation, and the Great Lakes Energy Fund, we have been able to provide counseling services to the local elementary schools once each week. We continue to be committed to working with children and their families in these communities in order to increase stability and improve the daily lives of those we serve.
