The Community Counseling Center of San Luis Obispo County will host an open house and social mixer Thursday to celebrate the launch of its new site in Grover Beach.
The new facility is the nonprofit organizations first independent office in the South County. It started offering services in South County about four years ago using space at family resource centers, said Executive Director James Statler.
The open house runs from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at 200 13th St., Suite 203.
The expansion was made possible through a partnership with Compass Health Inc. and counseling center volunteer therapist Julian Varela, who was recently hired as Compass Healths wellness and prevention director. Compass Health is also headquartered in the same building.
The Community Counseling Center, founded in 1968, provides short-term psychological counseling services and counseling information to low-income and uninsured county residents. It also has offices in San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles.
