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.

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 Maryland, Washington, DC , and Northern Virginia.

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.

Since 2020, CentrePointe Counseling's Samaritan Fund quadrupled the number of clients and amount of funds per year dedicated to clients requiring financial assistance for counseling.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
