why donate for counseling services?
When we look at the condition of the world today, it’s becoming more difficult to navigate. Have you ever wanted to make a difference but didn’t know how? The services funded by the Capstone Community Services Foundation are one way to impact people’s lives. Consider the condition of the family today. The impact of divorce, growing up in stepfamilies, and stressful work environments profoundly impact people. Employers deal with lost productivity, employee absenteeism, and other issues that negatively impact the work environment. The impact of pornography and other forms of problematic sexual behavior impact both employers and the family. Different addictions and betrayal trauma is one of the main sources of pain for people today. Add the impact of increased learning disabilities for children, behavioral disorders, and problems in the education system and it becomes overwhelming.
Capstone works with clinical consults and therapists and provides scholarships for people who can’t afford the full fee for professional counseling. We work with counselors, clinical social workers, marriage & family therapists, addiction specialists, play therapists, coaches, and pastoral counselors to provide services to people in need. Our goal is to impact the communities in which we work in a powerful way.
The Capstone 100 association has a goal of having 100 people contributing something every month to the foundation. We are a 501 c 3 non-profit corporation. All donations are tax deductible.
In 2011, we provided a scholarship to a family suffering from multiple addictions. They were only able to pay $5.00 per session. During a 6-9 month period, we worked with every member of the family. Both husband and wife were able to achieve sobriety. All their children came in for play therapy. Prior to this time, the wife had never held a job for more than 3 months.
In 2013, I received a letter from this family asking to see me when they were coming back into Atlanta. We met the next week and learned that the husband was now well-established in a career and over 2 1/2 years sober. The wife was also 2 1/2 years sober, had held the same job now for almost 3 years, and had been promoted 4 times. They came back to share their progress and to contribute to the scholarship fund that they said, “saved our lives.”
Many other lives have been touched during the years. We need your help to do more.
In the last year, the foundation has helped fund a play therapy facility and funded a small amount of scholarships. We want to do more! We need your help! Please consider joining the Capstone 100 club or making a one-time donation. For more information, please contact us at 770-744-5055 and ask for Richard. Or you can email Richard@capstoneatlanta.com.
