Giving is not just about making a donation. It's about making a difference.
Please consider shopping with us, referring to us, working with us, hiring us for workshops, volunteering and donating. We're raising money to continue free parent workshops and start free counseling, with therapies we know that heal.
We’d like to replace punishment, detention and suspension with free meditation, counseling and therapeutic arts to give kids who are showing symptoms of stress through poor behavior the healing they need. We also provide free monthly parent and teacher education so the adults are a part of the treatment as well.
This will not only help prevent bully behavior, substance use, depression and suicidal thoughts but also give kids the skills they need to cope with stress such as positive social-emotional and identity development, increase parent child attachment and increase overall happiness of families.
This year, we are raising $300,000 to help provide these services for free across the district. With $300,000 we will be able to provide 144 children with free counseling, provide 200 families with sliding-scale counseling, and offer parent education to 11,000 families. Our providers give 40% of their fee to help save for this and we do all we can but we need your help.
