Bring your appetite, as we'll be providing delicious bites and passed appetizers throughout the evening, as well as live entertainment, auctions, and more!

We are so excited to welcome you all back to our first live and in-person event since the spring of 2019! We are looking forward to an evening of celebration and enjoyment, right here in Manchester at The Clerestory, where we will have an auction, games and prizes, entertainment, guest speakers, delicious hors d'oeuvres, stations, an open bar, and more. For those unable to attend the event in person, an online-only option is available, so you can be a part of the evening from anywhere! Either way, we hope you'll join us on May 6th and enjoy an evening of reconnecting with friends and colleagues in the community. Most importantly, don't miss this chance to support children in our community who need our help!
Proceeds for this event will provide support for not only CCGC's Grow Ahead Program but also all outdoor spaces at both agency locations. By being a part of CCGC's Growing Together Gala, you will make it possible for more children to access enhanced mental health and special education services, and give them the chance to get outside and experience everything the world has to offer. Through these programs and services, we know that children truly can grow better, together.
For questions, to make a donation today, or to purchase a ticket via check or cash, please contact Molly Getchell at 860-643-2101 ext. 217 or [email protected]
What is the Community Child Guidance Clinic?
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).
