For A Great Cause
This sweet and sugary event is put on every year to raise money for the Family Counseling Service in Tuscaloosa. Their mission is to “improve the quality of life for people of West Alabama by providing accessible, expert counseling services and state-of-the-art programs that promote mental, emotional and social well being.” These services are available to children, youth, and adults alike, and focus on helping people overcome the real-world impacts of a distressing, traumatic situation or event.
FCS service areas break down into four, specially-designed categories:
- General Counseling – For families, couples, parents, and individuals.
- Adolescent Counseling – Programs for children and teens that target the specific needs of their age group.
- Adult Services – Programs developed to help adults manage their emotions and feelings in all areas of life, especially work and family.
- EAP (Employee Assistance Programs) – Provides mental health services, workshops, supervisory consultations, stress debriefing, and more to help employees manage the stresses of the workday while improving well-being and work performance.
