The work of Gratia Plena is supported partially by the fees we collect for services. Because we serve even those who cannot pay our full fees, strong donor support is necessary in order for Gratia Plena to survive financially. We receive funding from individuals, from parishes, and from private foundations. These funds are a great blessing to those whom we serve.
We are honored to have grant funding from the Scanlan Foundation, the Henderson-Wessendorff Foundation, and the Charity Guild of Catholic Women. We received funding assistance from St. Laurence Catholic Church (Sugar Land), Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church (Rosenberg), St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church (Houston), St. Theresa Catholic Church (Sugar Land), and St. Faustina Catholic Church (Fulshear). Ask your parish or organization if they might join in our mission. We have served individuals and families from nearly every parish in the Archdiocese.
Using the process below, you can make a tax-deductible donation to Gratia Plena, or make payment for your service fees. Why donate? Your donation may start recovery for a mother or a father who is drinking or using drugs. Your donation may help bring healing to a marriage on the brink of divorce. Your donation could provide hope to someone who is considering suicide. When it comes to assessing fees for our services, we see social justice as our guiding principle. All who are suffering deserve help if they ask for it.
Gratia Plena is a relatively new concept in the Catholic community. Our mission is to provide mental and spiritual health services for mental illnesses, addictions, and marriage/family problems and the spiritual distress usually associated with these issues...in a manner which is faithful to the teachings, values, and traditions of the Church. In our FAQ section on this website, we clearly state our position on and give several examples of issues that some people disagree with but still describe themselves as Catholic. Unfortunately these days, when someone says "I'm Catholic" it may be helpful to have a discussion about exactly what he or she believes. We think that this is especially true when it comes to finding a Catholic counselor for you or your family. If God wills it, then Gratia Plena will grow and hire more Catholic counselors and add more office locations across the Archdiocese...WITH YOUR HELP! Please consider making a donation and join us in praying for generous donors. We particularly need regular monthly donations, which helps us with our budget for the future. Thank you brothers and sisters. Please reflect on 2 Corinthians 9:6-15 or Luke 10:29-37.
