On behalf of the Fayette Counseling Center, and McIntosh Trail Community Service Board, our parent organization, I thank the Fayette County Board of Commissioners for their gracious consideration of our request for rent-free space.

As previous newspaper articles have alluded, community mental health and substance abuse services face an uncertain future due to continuing state cuts and changes in funding methodologies.

The funding cuts at the state level have passed the problem to the counties; commissioners must wrestle with addressing financial shortfalls so the citizens of their counties do not suffer the loss of services.

I feel privileged to live in a county where our leaders are compassionate and supportive of human services. Even though no decisions regarding space have been reached yet, it has been heartening to speak with our commissioners, and I am deeply appreciative of their efforts and concern.

Jane Fanslow, LPC

Director, Fayette Counseling Center

Fayetteville, Ga.
