The Guidance Center is excited to be one of 200+ nonprofit organizations participating in the third annual online giving event, Long Beach Gives! Set for Thursday, September 23, 2021, this citywide movement is a 24-hour day dedicated to help raise awareness about nonprofits and the important role they play in our community.


Last year, Long Beach Gives raised over $1.7 million from community members, businesses and employees alike. This year, the goal is to raise $2 million for the many diverse and wonderful nonprofit organizations that provide vital services to our beautiful city.


At The Guidance Center, we have set a goal of $25,000 to raise funds through Long Beach Gives for our Client COVID19 Relief Fund. These funds will help provide critical support to families so they can focus on their child’s mental well-being during this incredibly difficult and challenging time.  This fund supports families impacted by the pandemic in order to prevent exacerbation of their mental health symptoms. The various types of relief may include food, utility and housing support or laptops to support students so they can continue therapy and learning without interruption.
