Would you help us help?

The Waco Partnership for Psychological and Spiritual Care continues to provide counseling support for many in Waco.  We are especially committed to ministers, social workers, and teachers who give so much of themselves to our community.  My creative friend, Karen Waters, helped me with the following brief video which captures our mission:

Not only have we been helping those who care for the least among us, but I’ve been personally honored  to work with a missionary from Haiti who lost his wife in the earthquake that shook that country a few short months ago. Thanks to WPPSC, the cost of the counseling part of his recovery is covered.

Some of you know that I’ve purchased a little dilapidated cottage near downtown Waco.  The process of renovating this little space for counseling offices has proven more frustrating than I ever imagined.  I’ve received a small grant from the city, and we’ve almost finished working through some unexpected requirements from the inspectors.  I’m personally funding the cost of the project so I can provide space for a few more therapists who share my vision for a community of experienced counselors who understand the role of spirituality and faith in mental health.  Your gifts to WPPSC help us continue to care for others while this work is underway.

Here’s how you can help.

Personal gifts of $100 can subsidize up to 3 sessions of counseling. Congregational gifts of $500 expand the work even further.   If you’ve helped us before, we’ll be grateful for your continued support.  If not, then please consider a gift at this time.  You can donate with your credit card by following the instructions here.  Or you can send a check to WPPSC, P.O. Box 2421, Waco, TX  76703 (I’d be glad to send you a stamped envelope if you’ll shoot me a note to wacopartnership@gmail.com).

Thanks so much for considering this request.

peace,

Wes

    Wes and Karen, the video is absolutely beautiful. Waco is fortunate to have something like WPPSC to address the needs of those who serve our community so selflessly. I know firsthand how important it is to address faith issues when dealing with depression and life crises. My prayers for a smooth transition as you move into your new office, and for the financial support needed to continue such a worthwhile endeavor.
