Mission Statement

CCFTSince May of 1993 the Center for Counseling and Family Therapy (CCFT) (formerly the Family Development Center) has served as a resource for individuals and families in the St. Louis area as they negotiate transitions through the life cycle. The Center for Counseling and Family Therapy provides affordable counseling and outreach services to empower people to face life's tasks with confidence. Counseling services are available to anyone in need within the Saint Louis University community and throughout the metropolitan St. Louis area.

The CCFT was initially established through a grant from the Danforth Foundation. Recently, the Center for Counseling and Family Therapy joined with three other clinics in the College of Public Service under the umbrella name " Paul C. Reinert, S.J., CThe Reinert Clinics were made possible through a $1 million gift from an anonymous donor who wished to memorialize the vision of Father Paul Reinert, late President of Saint Louis University to "...prepare students for the real world and give them a sense of obligation to not avoid problems, but to find solutions for them. Not only competence, but conscience."

The goals of the CCFT are consistent with the mission of Saint Louis University which states, in part, that: "The University. . . maintains and encourages programs which link the University and its resources to its local, national, and international communities in support of efforts to alleviate ignorance, poverty, injustice and hunger, to extend compassionate care to the ill and needy, and to maintain and improve the quality of life for all persons."
