From a Thankful Client - As somebody who has been helped by LCS, I want to express my gratitude to the organization, donors, and future donors. A little bit over two years ago, I started my journey to break free from my spouse who was abusive verbally, emotionally, and physically. My life was threatened multiple times, not just verbally, but also through physical assault. I had lost all hope at one point that I would ever be happy again. That my needs would ever be met or matter, not just in my marriage but in my overall life. At the time, I had been working three jobs, seven days a week, supporting my spouse as she went to school. Shortly after we separated, I quit my main job as it was killing my mental health and went back to being self-employed as I was before, but in doing that I suffered a major financial hit as well as lost my health insurance. Through the greatly appreciated generosity of LCS donors, I was able to get the help I needed to stay strong and not return to a life of abuse. Your generosity continues to help me as I am now starting to live a life with purpose and am excited for the future. I met someone new who treats me better than anyone ever has. I wouldn’t have been able to break free, move on with my life and find happiness as quickly without LCS or the generosity of their supporters. THANK YOU to all past and future LCS donors.
Giving to Lutheran Counseling Services is a way to make a lasting impact on our Central Florida community. Your gifts make it possible for LCS to offer counseling to clients on a sliding scale, making critical therapy services much more accessible. Having access to mental health services allows clients to work through issues and move forward in healthier ways than they may have been able to otherwise.
