Like any institution with educational programs and services for those not able to afford high-quality care independently, Council for Relationships needs philanthropic support to be sustainable.

We want to continue to provide high-quality care for underserved communities and we cannot accomplish these goals without your support.

Your donation supports the following programs:

Low-Fee Counseling ServicesCFR’s therapy services are provided on a basis which allows access to most of its services regardless of the client’s ability to pay. Our fees are on a sliding scale based on income and no one is ever turned away due to financial limitations. Our fees can vary depending on the client’s ability to pay and which clinician is seen.

Community Partnership InitiativeCouncil provides free counseling services to underserved communities through our Community Partnerships Initiative (CPI). This is made possible through partnerships with organizations serving these underserved communities such as Project Home, Families Forward Philadelphia, Red Cross House, Southwark School, Nationalities Service Center, and more. Last year, we provided  counseling sessions and group workshops to over 500 individuals and families.

Operation Home and Healing: Operation Home and Healing (OHH) provides help for active service members, Veterans, and their families. Specially-trained therapists work with the Veterans and their loved ones to help heal the invisible wounds on their individual, couple, and family relationships. In private counseling settings, as well as in group programs, which offer education and skill building, Council’s therapists aim to help Veterans and their families heal and become better partners, parents, and family members.

Transcending Trauma Project: The Transcending Trauma Project (TTP) is a research project looking at Holocaust survivor adaptation and coping strategies in an intergenerational context. This is the only research project of its kind to look at prewar and post war factors, family dynamics, coping and adaptation strategies after the war and the impact of severe trauma based on three generations of family life histories.
