Child & Adolescent Counseling is committed to helping children in our community. This is not only done within the counseling office. Each year, we volunteer our time to local non-profit agencies that work to provide justice, hope, and healing to abused children in Tarrant County.

A group of 17 caring adult volunteers visited The Assessment Center on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to share hope, fun, laughter, and joy with the children. With the generous support of donors, the children made personalized Hope Boxes, and participated in face-painting, painting ceramics, cookie-decorating, manicures, and even had their pictures taken with Willie, the Certified Therapy Dog!
Inside each Hope Box was this little reminder:

The event was a true success for the children and volunteers. We knew it was a success when the kids asked us to come back every Saturday! Thank you to all the generous volunteers and donors who gave so passionately to a group of amazing children. We will never forget the children we met. We can't wait to get started on PROJECT HOPE 2012!
