What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

CentrePointe Counseling provides needed, affordable professional mental health care in a high demand region. About 18 percent of adults have any type of mental health illness in Maryland, District of Columbia and Virginia, amounting to over 2 million people. In Maryland alone, 22 percent of all adults with mental health-related issues reported they were not able to receive the treatment needed. The chief barriers include: absence of insurance, limited availability of services, and insufficient finances to cover costs (including co-pays or full fees). Furthermore, many clients with faith backgrounds have trouble accessing licensed counselors able to integrate a client's faith in their treatment plans. Many clients seek counselors they can trust to help them through treatment plans that include their religious beliefs.

Mental Health Counseling

CentrePointe Counseling provides professional, licensed counseling with Christian counselors in Maryland and Northern Virginia. We partner with churches and healthcare organizations to provide accessible care.

Our counselors are trained in spiritual integration, and when led by clients, are able to incorporate a client's faith into their treatment plan.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

CentrePointe Counseling's charitable goals are to provide accessible mental health care by lowering financial barriers to affordable, professional counseling; and by growing and developing our services to reach and impact more communities.

Our goal through the Samaritan Fund and other charitable activities are to provide high quality mental health care with licensed, professional Christian counselors in the Washington, DC to Baltimore, MD regions and beyond.

Through CentrePointe Counseling's Samaritan Fund, we provide a means for clients to access our mental health care professionals. The Samaritan Fund is a grant program that provides financial coverage for counseling sessions (at reduced rates) for clients requiring financial assistance. It is fully donor supported. Grants require a formal application submission that covers personal finances and need; applications are then reviewed for level of need. One hundred percent of donations have been designated for use by clients and church communities with financial need, who are unable to afford counseling on their own.

Through the Samaritan Fund and by accepting many insurance plans, CentrePointe Counseling provides financially accessible care.

New projects directed to reach more individuals and communicates include building lecture programs and group discussion sessions amongst church communities.

By building our counselor base, nurturing regional partnerships and developing educational outreach programs, we plan to continue to address mental health concerns across more communities in the area. Our counselors are all practicing Christians as well as licensed counselors, and comprise a community that holds each other professionally and ethically accountable.

CentrePointe Counseling has built partnerships and networks for the last 30+ years. Through trusted relationships with our partners and through our work reputation, we are able to access numerous church and local communities. With 23 licensed counselors (and growing) throughout Maryland and Northern Virginia, over 20 church partners, a professional and diverse Board, and key organizational partnerships and supporters, CentrePointe Counseling has been able to continue meeting and adapting to the needs of the region.

In Fiscal Year 2021 (FY21), CentrePointe Counseling's Samaritan Fund quadrupled the number of clients and amount of funds approved and distributed to clients seeking financial assistance to see our counselors.
