The Outback Bowl contributed $5,000 to our Ünderserved Program!
$5,000 translates to almost
60 HOURS OF FREE COUNSELING!
The LIFE Center's Ünderserved Program began in January of 2019 and was implemented to cover the cost of grief counseling for those who have difficulty affording our rates and have lost a loved one to suicide, vehicular accident, or illness. It is a part of our heritage to offer free services and we are happy to be able to extend this service to our community again.
This program is 100% funded by donations.
Special thanks to Greg Orchard, Treasurer of the Outback Bowl, who recommended our charity.

The Life Center was invited to attend Tyler Henry’s show, “5 Life Lessons I’ve Learned from the Departed”, at Ruth Eckerd Hall on June 21st. Tyler Henry is a Clairvoyant Medium who has a reality show called “Hollywood Medium”, does private readings, and has written a book called “Between Two Worlds: Lessons from the Other Side”.
Throughout his tour, Tyler and his team research and contact local grief counseling centers to invite them to and promote them during his show. Tyler knows that what he does can stir up issues regarding unresolved grief and that many in his audience would benefit from grief counseling. We were thankful to represent grief counseling for the Tampa audience and thoroughly enjoyed the show and getting to meet Tyler and his staff.
The college of Child and Family Studies at the University of South Florida (USF) honored The Life Center by presenting Sheryle Baker and Thomas Brown with "Outstanding Community Partner" awards.
Sheryle and Tom have been of great value to the Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling (RMHC) Masters program by supervising Practicum Interns while they meet their course requirements. The feedback from students and faculty regarding their stewardship of RMHC students has been exceptional.
Thanks to this award of $25,000 from the Lightning Foundation and Tatyiana Rich, we were able to provide free counseling for the underserved in our community for Suicide, Vehicular Accident, and Illness loss until October 31, 2018.
November 2018 Update:
Thanks to the Lightning Foundation and Tatyiana Rich, we provided
320 hours of FREE counseling to
147 individuals through this award!
The LIFE Center even contributed $3,680 to continue offering free services.
