Annual Report

Portrait of Lorna Mattern

Dear Friends, 

We are continually learning, growing and adapting to serve our community and meet the growing need for our services. Our new online  Annual Report gives a comprehensive view of our accomplishments and reflects the hard work and devotion of our staff, who have risen to the challenge of this year and who have been nothing short of heroic. 

In times like this, with increased substance use, anxiety, stress, and depression, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are. While the future is unpredictable, one thing I know for sure: together we can get through anything. 

Thank you for helping us build a stronger community. 

—Lorna Mattern, Executive Director

Thank you to the community!  

This year, United Counseling Service and its dedicated staff met every challenge the pandemic threw at us. We were able to expand services and supports as the need and demand for services continued to grow. The power of community to benefit health is far greater than just our one organization. Ours encompasses UCS staff, families, partner organizations, board members, council members, clients and their families, and others too numerous to list.  

The Board is proud of the strength of our staff and this community, the hurdles that have been overcome, and the successes that have been achieved during this challenging year. 

—Bob Thompson, President of the Board of Directors
