Mike & Sherry Project

The Mike & Sherry Project was established in 2019 with a mission to provide accessible mental health care to individuals working in the Austin restaurant, bar and hospitality industry. The Project has arranged a flat fee per appointment for counseling services with Capital Area Counseling, a psychotherapy center providing affordable, accessible, high-quality mental health services to all Central Texans. Bars and restaurants participating in the program split a portion of that fee with employees who seek counseling services. The Project was named for Mike Shefman and Sherry Greenberg, who are staples in the local food scene and have become an integral and invested part of the Austin community.
