Peace Partnership celebrates five years of providing healing and hope to kids in need

Over the last five years, Peace Partnership has helped more than 1,200 parents and kids find purpose and healing in their lives through its in-office counseling services and in-school counseling program. By keeping session fees low (in-office rates begin at $5 per session, and the in-school counseling program is free to students), parents can find help for their children and still afford to receive the help they need as well. Peace Partnership relies on the financial support of individuals and businesses to help cover the cost of counseling for those that can’t afford it through annual gifts and fundraising events.  

You can help support kids in need by participating in the second annual Peace Partnership Golf Classic on Thursday, September 27, at Adams Pointe Golf Club. Enjoy complimentary food, drinks and prizes all day long! For more information, call 816.886.0195, email info@peacecounseling.org or visit PeaceCounseling.org.
