Reach Within in the principal program of the Bartholmew J. Lawson Foundation for Children, a 501(c)3 working to end the epidemic of child abuse and neglect by getting to the root of childhood trauma, simply. By understanding how trauma changes the brain and affects behavior, Reach Within supports positive outcomes for children and adolescents who have experienced adversity. Our programs focus on the repair of neural pathways in the brain through rhythmic activities. Our trauma informed trainings allow caregivers and mentors to better understand how trauma affects children through the life-cycle so they may help children and teens develop positive healthy attachements - a key factor for resiliency.
Trauma is repairable and Reach Within is doing something about it.
Reach Within provides low-cost, high-impact outreach services to all residential care homes across the island of Grenada, a drop-in centre in the capital city, St. George’s and a recently established centre for trauma informed training in Mirabeau. Working alongside local government and key stakeholders in the region, Reach Within is uniquely positioned to offer its training model at both regional and international levels.
We invite you to join us in getting to the root of childhood trauma. Running a marathon takes grit - putting one foot in front of the other and moving towards that 26.2 mile goal, but it is also the support of those around the runner that creates such a life-changing experience!
Join us. Run with us. Be inspired by us. Create positive change.
Thank you to each and every one of you.
