For Referring Sources

The Pro Bono Counseling Project is a non-profit mental health referral network.  Low-income, uninsured families and individuals are linked with licensed therapists on a pro bono basis.

Clients are referred from schools and universities, community social service organizations, victims' services, churches, hospitals, other non-profit organizations, and volunteer clinicians (among many other sources).  The Pro Bono Counseling Project welcomes client sources from new providers and continually seeks ways to partner with referring agencies to reach a greater number of individuals and families in need. If you have a referral question, a client to refer or a unique partnership to offer, please contact us.
