The Centre would like to advertise our services to survivors of abuse and trauma who may be living in poverty and can not afford to pay the full fee for the therapy they so desperately need. We are seeking your help in funding our sliding scale so that our services are affordable to these individuals.
CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN ABUSED GROW UP! The effects of child abuse they suffered can become very evident in their lives throughout the teenage years and then into adulthood. This can cause many issues in their life such as when building relationships and working. Someone who has been abused as a child may have difficulty trusting others and have a lowered self-esteem, thus causing them to often engage in unhealthy relationships. All too often survivors of an entire childhood of torture are unemployed and disabled is many ways. Thus, having to pay for their own therapy is a great hardship, especially since it can take several years to recover from such vicious psychological wounding.
The GOOD NEWS is that appropriate trauma therapy works for these heroic survivors. They can heal from the terror of their younger lives and go on to live happy, safe, productive lives. It does take a time though, commonly years of therapy is necessary to heal completely from such extensive wounds.
The Centre has struggled to keep the lower end of our sliding scale accessible to the survivors of the worst forms of abuse. However with rising costs, we can’t keep the doors open and maintain that level. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Every donation counts, no matter the size.
