Our Financial Policies:
It is our intent to offer quality biblical counseling to all who desire it regardless of their ability to pay.
We suggest that each client pay $30 per hour for counseling. This is a suggestion rather than a requirement, and we ask each person individually to pray about their financial means and what is a reasonable and fair fee based upon their situation. As mentioned above, we will not refuse counseling to those who cannot afford the suggested fee. To help us comply with minimum wage standards, people who want to pay less than $10 per hour may be asked to provide evidence of extreme financial distress.
Although this is a non-profit ministry, as you might expect we do have fixed costs of operation. Insurance expenses, utilities, cleaning, and property maintenance, all contribute to our costs for each session. In addition, we are called to pay our workers a fair wage for their time preparing for each session, actually counseling, the follow-up work for each session, as well as other related office work.
How we are Supported
Our staff raise funds from outside sources to be able to provide counseling to people without respect to their ability to pay. Generally, our cost of counseling is a good bit higher than the fees we collect from clients. This difference is made up primarily by regular donations from individuals and churches. There is a delicate balance between offering low-cost counseling to all who need it and unfairly asking our supporters to pay for the counseling of people who are financially better off than those making the donations. In practice, it is impossible for us to make this trade-off, which is why we ask you to pray and ask God what is fair.
We ask clients to pay at the conclusion of each counseling session. Checks may be made out to Mountain Top Ministries, or MTM. We cannot accept credit cards at this time.
If you have further questions, please call us or ask your counselor.
