Volunteer to Raise Awareness and Improve Programs

The powerful, positive force of community volunteers can never be overlooked or underestimated. The Community Counseling Center is host to a variety of volunteer roles that are the heart beat and anchor of our approach to providing affordable, professional mental health services. We need your help and altruism to realize the CCC mission, so please consider a key volunteer role in one of several areas.

Board of Directors: the Community Counseling Center (CCC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) governed by a diverse group of volunteer professionals responsible for the operational and fiscal activities of the agency. The agency is continuously in need of dedicated and resourceful community members that are interested in volunteering their time and energy to improve the mental health counseling services available on the Central Coast. If you are interested in learning more about Board of Directors positions with CCC, please contact Executive Director, James Statler. Email: james@cccslo.com or Phone: (805) 543-7969.

Golden Anniversary Capital Campaign: To address the critical mental health counseling needs in our community, CCC’s Board of Directors has launched a Golden Anniversary Capital Campaign to help the agency secure a larger, permanent headquarters in San Luis Obispo, and springboard our programs in order to better meet the needs of economically disadvantaged clients on the Central Coast. CCC has received a lead gift from Vietnam Veteran Loron C. Cox. Mr. Cox was awestruck by the agency’s origins and inspired by the pioneering founders. He committed a pace setting donation of $505,000 toward the acquisition of a permanent facility in San Luis Obispo.

With these funds, the CCC has secured the historic “Greenfield House” at 676 Pismo Street thanks to Mr. Cox’s generosity. The house is located in the Office zone adjacent to St. Stephen’s Church. Offering 2,300 square feet, the facility allows for more than 40% more therapy space than the current location, and once established, will be the CCC flagship therapy clinic with the capacity to serve an additional 1,000 clients annually (representing a 50% increase in the total number of clients served). CCC has received all of the permits needed from the City to renovate and use this facility as its headquarters.
