No time in recent history has tested mental and behavioral health more than the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. The Covenant Community Counseling Center met the needs of our community and provided all services at no charge to those who sought our care.
While the method in which services were provided relied upon teletherapy, we were able to increase our outreach to those in our rural communities who have limited mobility or lack of transportation. Our caregivers saw success in providing career development to clients, many of whom became unemployed due to the pandemic. We watched first-hand as clients transitioned from one industry to another, thus truly seeing the hand of God in our work. This work opened opportunities to see other needs of our clients, including legal issues, food insufficiency, access to medical care or social isolation. The most rewarding of all is to know our caregivers provided hope for their clients, touching lives, one day, one person and one miracle at a time.
