    The Samaritan Counseling Center is a non-profit organization and is able to provide subsidized counseling, as needed, due to the contributions of our many funders to our Jeremiah 29:11 Fund. If one requires assistance funding and in order to secure funding, it is often necessary to provide aggregate household income data for our client base, which illustrates our financial need. This figure is to include all sources of income -- i.e. salary, child support, maintenance, investment income, housing allowances. Please check the appropriate range for your gross family income and the number of members living in or financially dependent on your household. Information provided to funders is only given in aggregate form and individual client information is not released.
