About Moundbuilders Guidance Center

Established in 1955 to provide mental health services Moundbuilders Guidance Center, Inc. began as a clinic on Hudson Avenue in Newark, Ohio.  As the demand for service grew the organization relocated several years later to North Fifth Street in Newark.  The organization was headquartered here until 1979.  Again, due to an increased demand for services it moved to its current location on Messimer Drive in Newark.

In 1969 the organization opened an office in Mount Vernon, Ohio on Blackjack Road in order to serve the Knox County community.  Due to increased demand for services over the years this facility has doubled in size.

The organization has been a state-wide leader in providing innovative, effective and efficient community based mental health services
