The mission of FSA Counseling is to improve the lives of individuals and families by providing affordable, quality counseling and education.
FSA was founded through a $500 grant from Chauncey Rose in 1862. Originally dedicated to helping widows and orphans of the Civil War, FSA has changed to meet the needs of the day, even being a charter organization of our local United Way. Today, FSA provides counseling, batterer's intervention, anger management, parent education, supervised visits, training in domestic violence to law enforcement, and other services. We serve the counties of Parke, Vermillion, Sullivan, Clay and Vigo in Indiana and Edgar and Clarke in Illinois.
In 2014, FSA provided direct services to 1,299 people, providing 7,121 hours of service. FSA worked with 750 of those consumers in our counseling programs. Children accounted for 12% of our clients, while 52% of clients have a household income of less than $40,000. Single parents with children comprise 31% of those seen.
Fees for services are often covered by insurance and Medicaid or Medicare. In addition, through the United Way, FSA is able to provide counseling at a reduced rate based upon household income. FSA also has a Victims of Crime Assistance grant for those who may qualify.
