YOUR DONATIONS ARE KEEPING OUR DOORS OPEN — THANK YOU!
(Click logo above to) Donate to Therapy Scholarship for Low-Income Marginalized Individuals
Often, members of minority and marginalized groups have the greatest need for therapy to help recover from injurious life experiences and environments. However, for the same reason, they are also the most likely to be unable to afford treatment.
This Therapy Scholarship will help to fund low or no-cost therapy in 2019 for low-income individuals with a qualified professional therapist. Your donation helps keep the utilities and rent paid here at ILC&P while we see clients!
Most applicants occupy at least two minority statuses, such as ability, race, gender, orientation, or others. Treating psychologist(s)/therapist(s) will approve clients’ appropriateness for treatment and need for assistance. There is a waiting list for further applicants as funds become available.
Last Year (2018)
Donors to the 2018 campaign provided $475 towards 40 scholarship sessions ($3880) for low-income marginalized clients.
Clients themselves contributed $484 in partial payments towards the sessions (no more than $15/session for those who contributed).
Treating therapist(s) donated the balance of their time ($2920).
In addition to scholarship sessions, treating therapist(s) also provided 98 discounted sessions through Open Path, a service for low-income clients. Treating therapist(s) donated the balance of $6,025 worth of session hours.
