Support DePaul Family and Community Services

Day after day I meet people from all across the university and the city of Chicago who speak so highly of our staff and student clinicians and the important behavioral-health work we do with under-resourced families, communities and systems.

Whether it be supervising and supporting students in training, equipping families with comprehensive evaluations in order to better advocate for supports, increasing access to behavioral health services by meeting with clients in the community or at schools, administrative front office support, claims processing or offering training to professionals who work in child-servicing systems, the DePaul Family and Community Services team is strong and exceptional!! 

I’m also thankful that I am surrounded by people that care about diversity, inclusion, and social justice for all. Sometimes we take this for granted, but in these times where rhetoric, politics, and actions of hate and division seem more emboldened, it is truly a blessing – something to be celebrated and cherished – to have a safe space to bring our full selves to work and a space to help children and families navigate through life’s most challenging situations.

Despite the strength of our team and the services we provide, the field of community-mental health has gone through a very difficult time as the funding landscape changes. Many centers and services around the city have closed or reduced their offerings in response to funding cuts. We have had to broaden our partnerships and diversify our funding sources in order to remain strong and viable. This is where YOU come in!

Please join me in financially supporting a very compelling mission of health, healing, and training. The giving levels outline how much of an impact your support can make.
