Get Involved

One Way to Get Involved: Calvin College StreetFest

If our mission of providing pathways to healing and transformation resonates with you and you’d like to get involved in our efforts, you can help support us in several different ways:

Spread the message that good mental health is important and valuable

Stigma remains a top reason why people in need of counseling fail to receive the services that would help them live their full potential. Far too many people still consider mental healthcare to be optional, or at most, less important and vital than other forms of healthcare.

By communicating ideas like “achieving good mental health takes effort and intention,” “mental healthcare is important,” and “seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness,” you’ll help create an environment in which people in need of care are more likely to seek services and less likely to experience feelings of distress, guilt, or shame when they do.

Talk to others about us and the work that we do

Though our Center is well-known and highly regarded by many, there are others in our community—including many people in need of counseling services—who may not have heard of us. In order to build awareness of our Center and the services we provide, consider mentioning us in conversations you have about mental health, or following us on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter and sharing our posts with others in your network.

Volunteer in our Grand Rapids Office

If you’d like to get involved in a more hands-on way, our Grand Rapids Office has many volunteer opportunities available. We have options to fit all kinds of different preferences and schedules. Whether you’re more interested in data entry or building and grounds maintenance, dropping in once a week or working a special event, we have a spot for you.

If you’re interested in volunteering, please fill out our volunteer application and return to us by email, fax, or snail mail. For more information about our volunteer program, please contact Terri Demeter at (616) 456-1178 or

Make a tax-deductible financial contribution

Though we are fortunate enough to receive grant funding for many of our special programs and projects, our ability to provide discounted services on a day-to-day basis depends in large part on how many individual donations we’ve received.

Get Involved by Providing a Financial Contribution & Help Grow FHCIf you’d like to get involved by covering the cost of counseling for people who might not otherwise be able to afford services, consider making a donation today. Every year, we provide thousands of counseling hours to our community at a free or reduced rate, so your dollars really do make a difference.

All contributions to both our Grand Rapids and Lakeshore Offices stay local and go directly to providing services. We accept in-kind contributions as well as contributions made via cash, check, or credit/debit card. If contributing by check, please make payable to “The Fountain Hill Center” and indicate in the memo line if you would like to support a particular office. If contributing via credit/debit card, please call our office at (616) 456-1178 to provide payment information.
