GLOVERSVILLE — The Family Counseling Center has received $75,000 in donations from the Johnstown Hospital Foundation for their Building a Healthy Community campaign over the last year.

According to a news release, the Building a Healthy Community campaign addresses a client wait list, creates new or strengthens existing programs, allows the organization to serve those who have no ability to pay for services, and contributes to the building of a centralized, state-of-the-art behavioral healthcare facility at the expanded Broadway location.

“We are delighted and thankful for the contributions from the Johnstown Hospital Foundation toward our Building a Healthy Community campaign,” said Michael Countryman, executive director of The Family Counseling Center. “Their support of the work we do and the organization’s expansion will have a great impact in our community.”

Recently, The Family Counseling Center opened its doors to the Phase-I 18,500-square-foot addition to its 11-21 Broadway Street location. Phase-II construction, the renovation of the organization’s existing 9,000-square-foot building, is expected to be complete by late summer.

The full project will triple the size of the facility, allowing for agency staff and administration to provide expanded mental health services, crisis services, addiction services, and primary care services under one roof at the Broadway location.

The Family Counseling Center of Fulton County has been serving the community since 1976 and ensures a broad range of superior, quality, evidence-based, behavioral support and social services to the community. The center is licensed by the New York state Office of Mental Health, providing services to children as young as five-years-old.
