Montgomery County Counseling Center is dedicated to making therapy affordable to people whose access has been restricted due to centuries of system oppression. It is one of our upmost values to dismantle that cycle and provide reparations. Our work toward antiracism must be actionable. Therefore, MCCC is creating the BIPOC Therapy Fund; an imperfect but small step towards actionable allyship.
This scholarship fund will help cover therapy expenses for Black, Indigenous and other People of Color, without relying on insurance companies who perpetuate the broken system and underpay health care providers. We will use The BIPOC Therapy Fund to provide therapy services at MCCC for BIPOC clients in the Rockville, Gaithersburg, Bethesda, Silver Spring, and the greater DC metro area!
We will publish more information on the nuts-and-bolts of how this program will operate in the coming days and weeks. For now please know this
- Owner Laura Goldstein will establish the BIPOC Therapy Fund through an initial contribution.
- A portion of MCCC’s ongoing profits will go towards the BIPOC Therapy Fund
- The general public will be able to contribute to this fund as a non-deductible contribution.
And if you are looking for a more established organization to support this cause, The Loveland Foundation is a fantastic agency that funds therapy for Black women and girls!
