(Cary, NC) – The Lucy Daniels Center is grateful to Cisco for their $10,000 grant to help fund the SecurePath program. The Cisco grant will help support free mental health services to underserved children birth through age 5 (or kindergarten entry) who are experiencing behavioral/emotional challenges.  Established in 2005, SecurePath provides mental health services and limited casework, in both English and Spanish. The services are provided in the environments that are both most accessible to parents and within which services can be most effectively delivered, almost always either in the home or child care facility.  The service is flexible, adapted to the needs of the family, but relying upon evidence-based and best practices models including parent counseling and skill development, dyadic (parent-child) guided therapies, and school consultation and guidance. SecurePath is critical to the Center’s mission – to help children live emotionally healthy lives.

“Cisco has always been and continues to be one of our strongest community partners. With decreased funding from the state and continued funding cuts to children mental health programs, the Cisco support is more essential now than ever before. We are eternally grateful for their continued support.” states Don Rosenblitt, executive and clinical director of the Lucy Daniels Center.
