CCGC's First Fall Fest was held in September of 2018, and we're so glad to be keeping this annual event going this year in 2022! Fall Fest is a combination of fall fun and resource fair that brings together businesses, organizations, and families for a day of enjoyment and sharing. Families can learn about helpful local services, programs, and products while kids get to enjoy a day of fun with entertainment, crafts, games, and so much more. And best of all, Fall Fest is FREE for families to attend!
As everyone knows, free events aren't free, and while we love hosting this event, we could not do it without the support of our generous sponsors and donors.
Your support of Fall Fest makes it possible to bring more great things to our community on the day of this fair, but beyond that, all proceeds from this event will support the Community Child Guidance Clinic and create even more opportunities to connect more families to our programs, services, and other resources throughout the year. Now more than ever, children's mental health is of the utmost importance, and making sure that all children can access the high-quality care they need is one of the biggest challenges we all face as a society. By supporting CCGC and this event, you are helping to close the gap and ensure that families receive the best possible care at the earliest possible time in a child's life.
This event, more than most others, creates a high level of visibility and helps to connect your company with the community in a direct and tangible way.
Our high-level sponsors are invited to attend the event and set up a resource table to talk directly with families on the day of the fair. With an attendance of over 500 people during previous years, this creates many opportunities for referrals and connections on the spot! Not to mention the fact that we are proud to recognize our sponsors and donors in various ways leading up to and after the event itself, putting your brand and your values in front of anyone who connects with the event online (previously as many as 1000 people have interacted with the event on Facebook alone!). Don't miss this opportunity to show our CT families who you are as an organization while making a huge difference for children and children's mental health all at the same time!
Consider a sponsorship for even more chances to shine
We love recognizing our sponsors and donors with banners, which are displayed leading up to the event and also at the event itself. Pair this with the option of having your logo and messaging shared in our program and on signage at the event, and you've got multiple opportunities to get the word out right from the beginning. See our sponsorship levels for details, and please remember that a donation at any level will help us to keep Fall Fest happening year after year, and also make it possible to offer the event for free to children and their families!!
Thank you for your consideration, and please reach out any time to connect with us directly about your donation or sponsorship:

Community Child Guidance Clinic, Inc. is a private, nonprofit, special education and mental health agency offering diagnostic, treatment, and consultation services to children 0-18 and their families. CCGC has worked to provide quality care for children suffering from mental and behavioral health concerns for over 60 years, and its mission states: “Our mission is to assist and support children with emotional and behavioral issues by providing a special education day school and a system of child and family-focused mental health services.” The agency fulfills this mission by providing an array of services for children including outpatient counseling, in-home services, an intensive outpatient program, therapeutic groups, Victims of Crime Assistance Services (VOCA), and a clinical day school. CCGC makes these services available to all children living in central Connecticut and offers vital opportunities for treatment, healing, and growth in a location that is accessible to families. The agency currently serves over 35 towns throughout Connecticut, and over 700 children each year.
CCGC originally opened its doors in 1959, with the mission of providing mental health services to families in Manchester and surrounding towns who would have otherwise needed to travel a significant distance when seeking care. CCGC’s small staff originally only provided outpatient counseling and psychiatric services, but later the agency grew to include a preschool and sexual abuse treatment team. These added programs represent the beginning of an ongoing commitment at CCGC to provide services that are relevant to the current needs of the community and which utilize the most contemporary practices in the field. Today, CCGC continues this tradition with the more recent additions of multiple Evidence-Based Practices, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC), and Modular Approach to Therapy for Children (MATCH).
