As a nonprofit our funding streams are diverse. About 65% of our funding comes from government contracts. The rest we raise… either by earned income or individual/corporate donations. That’s 35% that we must raise in order for this agency to be efficient and effective.


There are many opportunities to volunteer at Mariposa. To learn more about the ways you could get involved, give us a call. If you want you can apply to the volunteer application. Once this is filled out and mailed or emailed to our office we can find the perfect fit for you.


Mariposa sends counselors into 15 schools in Orange County. We provide individual, group and family counseling for high-risk children and their families.

Mariposa is here to support you!

Mariposa offers a wide range of services…Whether your issues are childhood abuse, domestic violence, depression, anxiety, loss of a loved one, anger management, difficulties with low self-esteem, communication problems or other life challenges, Mariposa’s counselors are here to help.

We offer Individual, Couples, Family and Group counseling in a caring and safe environment. Mariposa offers services in our Orange and San Juan Capistrano offices. We also offer services in multiple languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Farsi, Arabic, Chinese and French.

Often times, lack of child care is a barrier for many who seek help. Therefore, we offer free child care at both of our centers. Please make reservations when you make your appointment so that we can make sure we can accommodate your child.

If you or a family member needs assistance, please call our office to talk with someone and schedule an appointment. There’s no need to suffer any longer and our counselors are available now.
