What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Every person has struggles they need to work through. These struggles may involve traumas from the past, such as physical, sexual, or emotional abuse; or struggles which may involve personal issues, such as depression, anxiety, addictions, and anger; or relational problems found in marriages, parenting, and extended family. An of these struggles can prevent people from experiencing peace, hope and joy in their lives. Stats: -Nearly 700k children are abused in the US annually. 2/3 of the children disclosed sexual abuse -nationalchildrensalliance.org -Depression is the leading cause of disability in the US for those between the ages of 15-44 -nndc.org -Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the US effecting 40 million people -adaa.org -19.7 Million Americans battled a substance abuse disorder in 2017 -NSDUH -About 40-50% of first marriages end in divorce. This rate increases for second and third marriages -apa.org -Majority of people in US believe in God -pewforum.org

Charting impact

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

Foundations Christian Counseling Services's goal is to help fellow strugglers overcome the obstacles in their lives through faith-based counseling, resources, and instruction, and lead them on a path towards healing through Christ. As a result of our counsel, we hope to:

- Reduce the divorce rate
- Help addicts overcome their addictions
- Guide the anxious towards peace
- Provide hope to the depressed
- Reduce the suicide rates
- Partner with the church in providing faith-based counsel to their members / attendees

In addition to counseling, we also provide seminars at churches and within the community on addictions, depression, anxiety, marriage, and anger, though more topics are available.

While we maintain a blog (foundchristcounsel.wordpress.com), we are beginning to create written resources that will encourage the readers in their emotional and relational struggles and in their walk with God.

EXPANSION:
Foundations began in 2002 in the nursery of a church. Since this date, Foundations has increased in the areas where we serve. We now have over 12 locations in Northeast, PA, one location in New York, and we are working on another location in Utah. Foundations hopes to add 3 new office locations within the next 3 years, so we may help more individuals and families with our counseling services. We've hired a Director of New Initiatives to lead our expansion and establish roots in new areas in the US.

RESOURCES & INSTRUCTION:
Several of Foundations' staff members are beginning to write more resources for the churches and community to help them through various issues. Additionally, we have increased the number of seminars we have been providing.
