Arsht-Cannon Fund

The Family Counseling Center of St. Paul’s (FCCSP) is blessed by the opportunity to receive funding and partnership support from the Arsht-Cannon Fund.  Dr. Christine Cannon and her team have remained steadfast in their passion and ongoing efforts to help alleviate the cultural, linguistic, financial, and stigmatic barriers of the Hispanic population in Delaware to make their lives better.

The FCCSP recognizes and applauds these achievements, and we are grateful to be a resource in helping to move the Arsht-Cannon Fund’s critical mission forward.

The Latino Mental Health Workforce Program of the Arsht-Cannon Fund seeks to increase the number of bilingual and culturally competent mental health professionals to serve Delaware’s Latino community.  The program funds graduate-level studies for bilingual Delaware students enrolled in accredited Master’s programs for Clinical Social Work, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, School Counseling and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.

In association with The Latino Mental Health Workforce Program, the FCCSP has partnered with the Latin American Community Center (LACC) Mental Health Program to establish a network of professional support for mental health professionals who serve the Hispanic community.

As part of this network, five bilingual Masters of Social Work Students networked with each other and with supervisors Robin Taylor of the LACC, Allison Gonzalez of St. Francis Hospital, and Kathleen Seipel of the FCCSP on Friday, January 9th.  The talent and dedication of all gathered provides hope for the delivery of strong, culturally-competent services for our community’s diverse population.
