Please use 300 words or less to describe your agency and your impact in the community.

Brandon’s House is the only counseling center specifically for teens that provides completely free counseling.  We have removed the financial barrier, by providing free counseling, that often keeps young people from getting the mental health help they so desperately need.  We have served, through counseling, thousands of teens & their families throughout our 30 years and never once have we charged the client for the counseling we’ve provided.  The impact we’ve had is hard to measure, however we have been a place of hope & healing at a pivotal point in an individual’s developmental stage in life. 

Agency Mission Statement or Description:

Our mission is simply to be a safe place for teens to be heard, find hope and to get equipped for today’s many challenges.  We do that by providing completely free counseling to any teen & their family in our community. 

Year established: 1993 (30th anniversary this October)

Counties/regions serviced: All of Southern Indiana & Louisville, KY

Focus areas: Mental Health for Teens & their families

Impact in community: We have served, through counseling, thousands of teens & families in Southern Indiana throughout the last 30 years. 

Volunteer Opportunities: Mostly with fund & friend-raising

How 1si members can help your organization: By spreading the word of the free counseling we provide to teens.  Or by covering the cost of a teen’s counseling with us.  The average teen comes for 12 visits over a 3.5 month period.  Each visit costs $125 per session (an hour long).  So the total cost of a typical teen’s counseling is $1,500.  Maybe a group of people come together to cover the cost of a teen’s counseling. 

Additional information: In 2021 we served 147 teens & families.  In 2022 we served 233 teens & families.  This year we are on pace to serve over 300 teens & families.  Essentially we’ve more than doubled our impact in just the last 2 years.
