The George Foundation has once again assisted in making it possible for HGI Counseling to continue offering counseling services to area residents through a grant funding of $165,000 over three years.

“We cannot begin to thank the George Foundation for their generous support, for it will allow us to continue our mission more successfully,” said Sue Levin, executive director of HGI Counseling Center.

HGI’s doors are open to everyone.

However, not everyone has counseling in their budget, leaving them to believe they have no place to turn when a problem or challenge overwhelms them, and they do not know what to do, Levin said.

“HGI has a sliding scale and often offers pro-bono (or no-fee) counseling services,” she explained. “No one is turned away. We also have a walk-in counseling program, where no appointment is needed for those in crisis, or for those who do not want to wait for an appointment.”

In 2019, HGI provided counseling services to 1,925 clients in Fort Bend County, which includes individuals, families, couples and students.

HGI has been providing counseling, training, workshops, research, disaster and crisis response, and so much more for over 40-years, and have been serving Fort Bend residents for the past four and a half years.

“Fort Bend has welcomed us with open arms, and we are thrilled to be part of this wonderful community. The generous support from the George Foundation has helped make it possible for us to see so many clients without having to charge fees that are unaffordable. We cannot begin to thank The George Foundation for this support,” Levin said.
