Concord Counseling Services’ Capital Campaign Case for Support
Growing to Meet the Increasing needs of Central Ohio

OUR BUILDING EXPANSION OVERVIEW & PLANS
Since moving to our new building in 2010, Concord Counseling Services has experienced a 42% increase in mental health and substance abuse services to individuals in our community. The demand continues to increase. While our services have seen a steady increase, our space has not kept up with our clients’ needs. The addition of 20 offices for therapists, physicians and nursing staff means Concord will be able to serve approximately 30% more clients (1,100+) each year. In addition, a new group room will allow us to expand our group-based therapies and programs for our clients. A new innovative training room will allow us to provide critical training to our staff and will be available to the community when not in use.

Just Dream
By Randy Jones

Close your eyes
Spread your wings
Dream a dream
That sets you free
Let your soul fly
Through unchained
Lands of liberty.

If you can't get up
From your chair
If you can't
Leave your room
Or prison cell
Just dream.

If you're ill
Dream of a place
Where you're well.
If you're poor
Dream of a place
Where you're rich.
Whatever situation
Or environment you face
Just dream.

Dream extraordinary dreams
Sitting by an open window
Or at the edge of a forest
Near an old oak tree
Dream yourself
Past Saturn and Mars
Let the music call your name
Even if the music isn't playing.

Dream until you
Find yourself inspired
Then let the dream
Take you higher
Dream the possible
Out of imPossible.

Dream like
It keeps you alive
Whatever shape
Or form your wings take
Big or small
Dream.


And If your back's
Against the wall
And you're down to
Your last option
Let your light shine bright
And dream
Just dream
.
