‘COVID-19 Relief’ Fund:
Give Help where it’s Needed Most

As therapists and care providers, we recognize that times of crisis call for the resources of our greater community to help the most vulnerable. Donations to our ‘COVID-19 Relief Fund’ support urgent and emergent needs, as well as critical services and assistance for clients so we may continue to provide hope, healing, and recovery to all.


‘Heart of Gold’ Fund:
Therapy Assistance for Families Facing Financial Hardships

The rising cost of prescription drugs, high co-pays, and deductibles, in addition to limited and uncovered mental health services, may be the deciding factor in whether an individual or family can pursue needed treatment. Donations to the ‘Heart of Gold Fund’ help fund client therapy sessions, providing hope of recovery to hundreds of children, adults, and families in Carroll County.


ALICE’ Fund:
Our Neighbors Who are Working Hard, but Struggling to Survive

ALICE is an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, and Employed. The ALICE population consists of those who live above the poverty line and are working, but do not earn enough to afford childcare, food, transportation, and healthcare. Donations to the ‘ALICE Fund’ alleviate the cost barrier for services and assist clients in accessing community resources needed to ease the burden of financial insecurity.


‘Moving Mountains’ Fund:
Support Our Client’s Emergencies & Basic Needs

When our staff is up against obstacles to meet the crucial needs of the clients and families that they serve, we depend on donors to help us ‘Move Mountains’ through philanthropic support. Donations to the ‘Moving Mountains Fund’ allows therapists to respond to the emergency and basic needs of clients facing ongoing monetary hardships and housing insecurity with help for meals, temporary shelter and more.


‘Heart of Life’ Fund:
Support our Continuum of Care Across the Lifespan

There is no one-size-fits-all program or treatment for clients and their families living with mental health conditions, developmental disabilities, substance use disorders, and traumatic brain injuries. It is critical that we provide a full “continuum of care” of integrated, community-based mental health and substance use services for Carroll County residents from birth to elder adults. Donations to the ‘Heart of Life’ Fund support our prevention, intervention, and treatment services in the least restrictive and most cost-effective manner.


‘Reason to Believe’ Fund:
Invest in Evidence-Based Treatments

Evidence-based programs are the gold standard in the counseling field. These treatments are proven effective by rigorous research and testing of results. Because the cost to offer and administer these programs is much higher than the rate of reimbursement from public and private insurances, CCYSB must cover the difference for clients. Donations to the ‘Reason to Believe’ Fund ensure that all Carroll County residents have local access to the most innovative, high-quality treatments available in mental health: Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Brief Strategic Family Therapy Program (BSFT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), and Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP).


‘Chariot’ Fund:
Supporting Client Transportation Needs

Several our agency’s clients who require mental health or substance use counseling cannot afford gasoline to their scheduled appointments each week, resulting in cancellations. Donations to our ‘Chariot Fund’ support gas cards for our clients, increasing their ability to attend scheduled appointments and ensuring continuity of care.
