The Staff and Board of Directors of Family Counseling Service are pleased and excited to announce the Monster Mash Cupcake Dash. The proceeds of this event directly benefit the community through the programs of Family Counseling Service.
FCS has been serving the Coastal Bend since 1942 and the need for mental health and victim services in the Coastal Bend is only increasing. In 2020, 76% of those we served reported issues related to COVID-19 and we expect that individuals, children and families will continue to deal with such stressors. The long-term impact the pandemic will have on mental health is significant and we have much work to do to ensure access to needed mental health services. Many of those we serve are uninsured or underinsured and this is the reason we rely on events to raise funds to help cover the cost of therapy.
We are able to provide high quality mental health care to all who seek it, thanks to the generosity of our community. Such generosity allows us to continue to fulfill our mission of strengthening children, individuals and families in the Coastal Bend.
Our goal for this community event is to bring out children and their families. We would like to take advantage of this opportunity to send a message to the children of the importance of family and healthy living. We would appreciate the privilege of having you participate in this very special day.
