LOVELAND COUNSELING CONNECTIONS
Loveland Counseling Connections (LCC) is an information and referral service for low and moderate income individuals, couples, children, and families in need of mental health counseling.

LCC staff also provide pro bono counseling services to those that cannot afford the sliding-fee scale so that no one in need of treatment is denied services.
