Quality counseling does not have to be cost prohibitive. As a mission-centered organization, we have structured our counseling program to provide quality and affordable counseling. The quality comes in the professional qualifications of the therapist: their training, experience and licenses. The affordability comes in the way the program is funded.
We don’t rely solely on the fees generated to support our counseling program. We combine our fees with an appeal for charitable support. That relates to the Christian love and compassion our supporters have for those struggling in life. Because we receive donations, we can offer a sliding scale as the basis for our counseling fees. That means that our fees are based on the income of a family. The fee scale “slides” up as the family has a higher income level. Our full fee is what is considered usual and customary for this work.
Call the Agape offices to learn what would be your fee for counseling.
