Counseling & Domestic Violence Support

Victims of physical, emotional and sexual abuse receive critical counseling by licensed professionals. As they get their lives back on track, clients are also provided budgeting, goal-setting and financial planning assistance.

Compassionate Assistance for Families

In the summer of 1983 a group of people in Fredericksburg met to coordinate community service organizations and “identify gaps in social services”, and the Hill Country Community Needs Council (HCCNC) was born, with the following purpose statement: The Hill Country Community Needs Council is committed to promote the common good and general welfare of the people of the community by providing an organizational structure for meeting human needs.

The Needs Council benefits greatly from the support of the Gillespie County Ministerial Alliance, local schools, law enforcement, civic organizations, businesses and citizens of the county. The Needs Council hosts the bi-monthly interagency council which brings social service organizations together to network and support each other. The organization has a rather long name, however as you get to know us you will appreciate how essential each word in our title is! We represent what so many people find attractive about the HILL COUNTRY and that is the friendly support we offer our neighbors. COMMUNITY, you’d be hard pressed to find an organization more grateful for its community support. NEEDS COUNCIL, what better description is there for an organization that attempts to help every person who walks in the door? The Needs Council may not have the answer to your question or your need but we will certainly try to point you in the right direction to get the help you need!
