In July of 2021, CARE Counseling attended the Twin Cities Pride celebration in Loring Park where we donated a dollar of our own money to CAREMore (Over $400), for each person that joined our resources newsletter. CARE More is a non-profit founded by CARE Counseling that raises money to pay for books for BIPOC students pursuing a master’s or doctoral degree at the University of St. Thomas. Currently in Minnesota, only 1.8% of clinicians are BIPOC and by removing one barrier we hope to make a difference.
To keep the community support flowing we then turned to our staff and asked what charities they were passionate about that served our community as well. We donated $20 on behalf of every employee. These are some of the charities chosen by employees:
CARE More | Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery | Black Visions Collective | The Bridge for Youth | Cornerhouse | Can Do Canines | Connections To Independence (C2I) | All Square Minneapolis | Autism Society of Minnesota | Justice Frontline Aid | Crisis Text Line | Quatrefoil Library | George Floyd Global Memorial
Donating allows us to further our mission of, ”Building a community to strengthen the community.” Donating to charities that matter to our clinicians also allows us to support them on a personal level. Thank you to everyone for a wildly successful PRIDE season. To learn more about what CARE Counseling does, check out the information below!
