Edra Blixseth Community
Named for our much loved president of the board of directors, Edra Blixseth, at right, our Community Counseling Center opened its doors in March of 2000.
Available to the entire Coachella Valley, the Center provides professional, individual and group counseling, case management, advocacy and crisis intervention services to abused women and children who have completed an emergency shelter stay or to community members who are not currently in need of emergency shelter.
All are suffering from the aftermath of physical, emotional and other forms of abuse at the hands of an intimate partner.
With initial funding from the California Endowment, the Edra Blixseth Community Counseling Center in Palm Desert serves 1,000 adult and child victims annually and also houses Shelter From The Storm's legal clinic and administrative staff.
