Nonprofit Counseling Center Opens New Office in Montgomery County
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX - A nonprofit with the mission of providing help and hope for hurting hearts opened a new office in Montgomery County this week. In partnership with Conroe Church of Christ, Shield Bearer Counseling Centers begins providing services without regard to ability to pay at 1860 Longmire Road in Conroe.
“We have partnered with Shield Bearer to help couples, families and individuals for the past several years” said Conroe Church Minister Steve Yates. In the past, those needing help would have to drive down to Tomball or into Cypress for Shield Bearer’s services. “We felt the need to bring their services here, to serve people in Conroe, Willis, The Woodlands, and the surrounding areas.”
“We have seen an increase in the demand for Christian professional counseling services and prevention programs all over the Greater Houston area,” commented Executive Director Roy Wooten. “Victims of crime and abuse, veterans and active military personnel, human trafficking survivors, homeless women and children, struggling marriages, and thousands of additional hurting hearts are in desperate need of healing. Shield Bearer is committed to going where we are needed and providing exceptional services and programs at a reasonable cost.”
Shield Bearer, a Houston based non-profit and lead agency in the movement to strengthen individuals, couples, and families has expanded their reach to serve two new areas in Houston. Appointments for any of the five locations can be made by calling a Client Relations Specialist at (281) 894-7222.
Shield Bearer’s counseling services, support groups, and prevention programs are offered on a sliding scale and the non-profit relies on individual and business contributions to supplement costs. “Community supporters play an invaluable role in the hope and healing found at Shield Bearer. Through volunteering, event sponsorships, or monetary donations, supporters can make an immediate impact in the community, one heart and one family at a time,” stated Associate Director Melissa Rotholz.
