He’ART of Concord

“What a WONDERFUL event we had on May 18th with the He’ART of Concord and our Open House! More than 300 people were in attendance and 200 of those were community guests. I was so proud of our client artists and staff who helped them. What a wonderful way to showcase the talents and dreams of our clients.”

The He’ART was a resounding success! Artists made almost $7,000 in 2½ hours, and many of the artists have called and emailed describing it as “one of the best days of their lives.”

Concord Counseling Services Capital Campaign

Concord Counseling Services’ Capital Campaign Case for Support
Growing to Meet the Increasing needs of Central Ohio

Our building expansion overview and plans

Since moving to our new building in 2010, Concord Counseling Services has experienced a 42% increase in mental health and substance abuse services to individuals in our community. The demand continues to increase. While our services have seen a steady increase, our space has not kept up with our clients’ needs. The addition of 20 offices for therapists, physicians and nursing staff means Concord will be able to serve approximately 30% more clients (1,100+) each year. In addition, a new group room will allow us to expand our group-based therapies and programs for our clients. A new innovative training room will allow us to provide critical training to our staff and will be available to the community when not in use.
