INTAKE PROCESS: Contact our Intake Office at 87 N. Clinton Ave. by calling (585) 546-3617. Potential clients will talk to our Intake Coordinator who will ask basic demographic information as well as why the client is seeking counseling. If CFC’s Counseling Services are appropriate to the client’s need, the Intake Coordinator will offer an appointment based on the location and time that best suits the client. If CFC is not the appropriate level of care, the Intake Coordinator will assist the caller in identifying other resources.
CFC’s Counseling Program also supports a part-time Counselor at St. Joseph’s Neighborhood Center located at 417 South Avenue. St. Joseph’s offers free counseling, medical and dental care, and a host of supportive services for those who cannot afford even the lowest fee. While there is considerable demand for these services and, therefore, sometimes a waiting list, St. Joseph’s offers wonderful assistance to many in our community.
