OUTREACH 5.0 – ENDOWMENT INITIATIVE

In 2024, Outreach Teen and Family Services will celebrate half a century as a trusted, valued community resource, offering accessible, affordable, professional counseling and educational programs to youth, ages 5-21 and their families.

Since its founding in 1974, Outreach has evolved to meet changing needs—and those needs continue to grow. The main reasons clients come to Outreach today are anxiety and depression, as well as behavioral adjustment and family issues. Depression alone has risen 30% recently. Close to 80% of those who need treatment for mental health can’t find it or receive substandard care. That makes Outreach’s community based counseling services essential.

Our goal is to raise at least $300,000 by Outreach’s 50th anniversary in 2024, creating an Endowment Fund at the Mt. Lebanon Community Foundation to support Outreach’s mission by ensuring subsidies for those in need; a comfortable, welcoming facility for clients; and an engaged, highly professional staff.

Perhaps Outreach helped your child or your family benefited from its programs.  If not, you probably know someone Outreach has positively affected. And even if you don’t know who that someone might be, rest assured Outreach has helped make our community a safer, healthier place.

Join Your Friends and Neighbors!
