One of the main focuses of the Breaking Free Foundation is to help make trauma healing more accessible for everyone. One of the ways in which we are doing this, is through our therapy grant program, which allows approved candidates to receive designated therapy services, paid for via our foundation.
How this works is simple, interested applicants just fill out our Application for Therapy Grant, and scan/email or mail it to us. We review each applicant, and assess their needs for trauma-based therapy. If the applicant is approved, we match them with one of our approved and screened trauma therapists. Our model differs from other free counselling services, because we pay the trauma therapist their regular fee, so we can ensure that we are providing our clients with the best possible quality of therapy. We also only work with therapists who are trauma trained and specialize in this type of work. We look for specific designations and certifications and screen all of our therapists thoroughly.
If you are a trauma therapist who is interested in being part of the Breaking Free Foundation program, please contact us.
The money for these grants comes from much-needed and generous donations and fundraising dollars, including donations, events, and from the annual Victor Walk. If you’re interested in donating to the Breaking Free Foundation, please contact us.
