Therapy Made Possible Through Grant from the Community Foundation of Burke County

Posted by: swright 4 years, 5 months ago

A generous grant of $5,000 from the Community Foundation of Burke County has made it possible for children in Burke County who were abused to receive therapy. A program of Southmountain Children and Family Services, called the Center of Excellence, provides Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, an evidence-based therapy, to help children heal from the trauma symptoms, stress and other problems that result from suffering from child abuse.
Most of the families served by the Center of Excellence use their health insurance to cover the costs of therapy. But for uninsured and underinsured families, they cannot afford this much needed service. This grant from the Community Foundation of Burke County has allowed several Burke County children to receive therapy. We are very grateful to the Community Foundation for funding this important service for children who were abused!
