expands Internship Program 



Funding from the United Way of Grayson County has made it possible to launch a new internship program.  Master level interns who are clinically supervised by licensed supervisors provide outpatient mental healthcare to clients at the Center and offsite at the Grayson County Shelter, Greater Texoma Health Clinic, North Texas Youth Connection Shelter and the Crisis Center.

The grant from United Way of Grayson County is a great start to funding the program.  We are seeking additional funding to continue to expand the program.  Through the Family Empowerment Program, interns provide FREE services to parents helping them better understand their child's diagnosis/problems as well as provide tools for parents to gain new skills to improve family functioning.  Interns are facilitating existing groups and developing new groups to better serve our community.  


Licensed Interns hold a masters degree and temporary license from the State of Texas.  They are required to earn 3000 hours of field time which is earned whiled providing services at CFGC.


CFGC is extremely grateful to the United Way of Grayson County for providing seed money to launch this program. 

Happy Thought

   Oh how we love pumpkin season!
