The Counseling & Education Center (CEC) began in 1981 as the Center for Enriched Communications — a vision brought to life by Sister Faye Huelsmann (MS, LPC) and Sister Pat Lewter (MA, LPC). Their goal was to provide affordable counseling services to individuals and families in Mesa County, regardless of their income or ability to pay. In 1998, the Center merged with Individual and Family Counseling, another nonprofit with similar goals. The merged agency became the Counseling & Education Center (CEC).

CEC is grateful to have generous funding partners, enabling us to serve more Mesa County children, teens, and adults in need of counseling services.‌ Our mission is possible through their support and the support of so many donors!

This generosity allows us to provide access to quality counseling and education services at an affordable cost to the Mesa County community. We deeply appreciate these connections and relationships. We give special thanks to the CEC staff, Board members, sponsors, donors, partners, community members, and our clients.

From all of us at CEC, THANK YOU!
