Family Connection Center
Today, the Family Connection Center provides affordable, professional, outpatient mental health services to individuals, couples and families. It is the only agency in Salt Lake County whose mission is to serve the mental health and substance abuse needs of low- to no- income, uninsured clients. Through its “Community Cares” program, services are offered on a sliding fee scale based on annual income, allowing each person to pay what he or she can afford. A majority of Family Counseling Center clients are the uninsured, middle-income or “working poor” families who are ineligible for welfare services or similar programs because they are employed, but are still unable to afford the expense of counseling.
