Crisis Center Honors Cornelia & Dick Corbett
It takes the support of thousands of people to implement the mission of the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay. Periodically someone makes an extraordinary effort to show their commitment to the Crisis Center's work. Such is the case with Cornelia &
Cornelia & Dick have truly embraced the mission of the Crisis Center. Their passion to help children and families in our community is evidenced by their support of the Crisis Center and many additional non-profit organizations in our community.
On Monday, November 4th, Dick & Cornelia Corbett were honored in a dedication ceremony at the Brandon location of the renamed Corbett Trauma Center. The Brandon location recently underwent extensive renovations in order to expand the Crisis Center's ability to provide mental health counseling in Eastern Hillsborough County.
The dedication ceremony was attended by business and community leaders including Hillsborough County Commissioners Ken Hagan & Al Higginbotham. Cornelia Corbett cut the ribbon and was presented with a framed "Thank You Ms. Cornie" t-shirt that had been decorated by a young child who is currently receiving Corbett
Trauma Center services.
People in our community receive care in one of three Corbett Trauma Center locations; Oakfield Drive in Brandon, Mary Lee's House in Tampa, & the Crisis Center's main campus off Bearss Avenue in Tampa. Corbett Trauma Center is where children and adults who are victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse, and other traumas can receive counseling services, group therapy, and other support.
There are many ways you can support trauma counseling, family stabilization, survivor empowerment and many additional Crisis Center services. These include joining the Legacy Society, the Sustainer Society, or making a donation through the website.
