The mission of the Kay Doré Counseling Clinic is to:
- Provide affordable mental/ behavioral health services for South West Louisiana's adult and children population,
- Conduct relevant psychological research,
- Provide educational workshops/ services for the community.
Though KDCC's counseling program willingly treats those from all backgrounds and economic situations, its aim is to serve community members who fall under the following criteria: those at or below poverty level, uninsured, insured but without mental health coverage, single parents, and students (other than those attending McNeese State University).
