Marblehead Counseling Center is one of 150 local nonprofits that will share in $30 million from the Cummings Foundation’s annual grants program. MCC was selected from a total of 630 applicants. It will receive $120,000 over three years.
MCC is a nonprofit mental health clinic with a mission to improve the quality of life for individuals and families in Marblehead, Swampscott and other North Shore communities.
The $120,000 will support graduate clinicians at MCC while they’re in the supervision phase of their career, explained MCC Board President Ruth Ferguson. “These funds will allow us to retain a clinician for this gap period, which in turn means MCC’s clients get the continuity of care that is so important,” she said.
