Make a Gift

Thank you for taking part in our #MoveforCPS Challenge! Your generous gifts will help fund our emergency response to COVID-19 which will cover these 3 areas:

  • Free, critical therapies to frontline and essential workers, and for families directly affected by COVID

Setting up a hotline or support group to assist frontline and essential workers in helping them to process some of the trauma that they have faced and will be facing in the coming months. In addition, we seek to provide additional support for families directly affected by COVID.  This amount will cover start up costs and the costs of providing over 2000 support sessions with our clinical team, taking 80 calls a week for 25 weeks, allowing the center to support nurses, firemen, doctors, teachers, grocery clerks and all essential workers for free into the Fall season. 

  • The ability to provide online assessment services

At present, we do not have the capability to carry out important psychological and psychoeducational testing services, which identify school and college students that need special accommodations, without face-to-face interaction. With your support we can acquire the necessary online applications and tools in order to continue providing this service to 20-30 clients this summer so that children and young adults can be ready for school starting back up again in the Fall.

  •  Supporting the most vulnerable 

The Center has identified those who are most affected by this pandemic and our team will continue to provide services to these individuals regardless of their financial difficulties.  Whether young adults, children or veterans, we are providing services to all in need of mental health care.  Currently, 55% of our clients have asked for a reduction in therapy costs. We are providing therapy sessions for as low as $5.00 a session and we would like to continue to provide this rate for those in need.
