Supporting: Therapy Fund for Black Women and Girls for The Loveland Foundation Inc.

As someone who has struggled with mental health in the past, I understand how difficult it is to deal with. What I don’t understand is having the life of someone I love taken from me simply because of race. Black women and are having their fathers, uncles, sons, friends murdered by the hands of the racist.  Mental health and racism are topics that are stigmatized and need to be addressed. I am hoping that black women and girls will benefit from this fundraiser and be able to cope with the events going on in today’s world. I am listening, I hear you and I WILL fight for you.

Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund. Whether you have already donated or you are just learning about the project, we are grateful to have you on board.


 With therapy sessions in the U.S. typically costing anywhere from $60 - $250-- even with insurance, the prevalent and ingrained stigma surrounding mental health in many communities, and the fact that the vast majority of therapists in this country are white, it is often difficult for Black women and girls to access therapy when they need it. We wanted to change that. 


In our pilot program, we raised over $250,000 with the support of our generous community and provided financial assistance to hundreds of Black women and girls to go to therapy. We did this through collaborative partnerships with  Therapy for Black Girls, Open Path Collective, National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network, and Talkspace, networks and service providers that are all committed to making therapy more affordable and accessible. 


No matter how much you are able to give, we are excited to work together with our community again to bring therapy support directly to Black women and girls who need it. Please donate now to tangibly tell these women and girls, “We see you, we hear you, and we are invested in your healing.”Generations will benefit from their healing.
