Samaritan Counseling Center of SETX has been selected as a finalist for the CareSource Foundation Grant Challenge.

Samaritan Counseling promotes strong families and communities by engaging the entire family in the healing process.

“The citizens of SETX deserve the opportunity to have mentally safe spaces to grow and learn,” a statement from Samaritan said. “We are faithful in being a part of the solution and of a long‐term commitment to all in our community. These funds would provide critical mental health services to teens and adolescents in Southeast Texas.”
