Those experiencing trauma, or those who are the most vulnerable to experience trauma, often repeated trauma, are often those who are least likely to be heard or treated. This is something that we would like to see some change in. The Loveland Foundation is an organization that is trying to provide a source of healing. They offer therapy and access to therapists and resources to communities of color, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. The Gender and Inclusion working group is supportive of the work of The Loveland Foundation, and we have decided that we will like to help with the healing.
The past five months have seen us go through so much turmoil and trauma, first with this global pandemic and then with the racial unrest seen not just in the US also globally. We need healing, we need talk therapy, we need to be heard and have our experiences validated and we need to begin healing. Those who are vulnerable to both the traumas of the pandemic and racial injustices often are not able to get to the healing. By supporting The Loveland Foundation's mission, we can do our part to help.
Let us do our part to help!
Help us to reach our goal .
We thank you for your support.
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.
