We’re raising money to benefit the GREAT Youth and Families Program (GYFP) of Housing Families, Inc., and any donation will help make an impact.
According to the National Healthcare for the Homeless Council, “emotional and physical effects of homelessness leave a lasting mark on children and youth due to trauma, poor nutrition, and delayed health care.”
Homelessness negatively impacts children’s mental, social, and academic well-being. High-quality therapeutic and academic interventions are crucial to help children overcome traumatic experiences and build skills.
Therapy and academic support are the backbone of the GYFP model. With these supports in place for a sustained period, children and youth begin to heal from their trauma, process their experiences, build positive relationships, and catch up on their academics. In short, they are developing the skills needed to thrive.
While some organizations provide services similar to HFI, none provide the same range of holistic services under the same roof.
GYFP provides an early holistic intervention that allows children and parents to heal before they become symptomatic, whenever possible. This reduces the likelihood that symptoms and severe issues will persist. Other services unique to GYFP include: no-cost services including transportation, exclusive service to
homeless/housing insecure children, programming for parents, and unlimited therapy sessions.
Help us make our goal of $100,000 and contribute today!
