The Community Counseling Center is a private, not-for-profit comprehensive mental health care center, providing services to children, adults and families.
According to the foundation, many area doctors and lawyers give their time to practice for and play in the heated competition, and their antics always make for a fun and entertaining evening for families in the Heartland.
Any attorney or doctor is welcome to come out to practice each week and play with their peers. Contact Larry Essner, executive director of the Community Counseling Center Foundation, for more information at 339-6512.
