“The true character of society is revealed in how it treats its children.” -Nelson Mandela
Behavioral health diagnoses among children are increasing. Because children are resilient, treatment can make a difference that lasts a lifetime. Navos' Child, Youth, and Family Program offers treatment and support in a safe, welcoming environment. Our caring team of compassionate therapists provides trauma-informed care and mental health services for children who have suffered physical or sexual abuse, neglect, homelessness, substance use or behavioral health disorders in the family, exposure to violence, parental incarceration, and family dissolution. Approximately 92% of the children and youth we treat live at or below poverty. When children experience trauma and high levels of stress at an early age, it can interfere with their ability to grow and develop. Navos’ highly trained therapists provide compassionate care, hope, and the help children and their families need to heal and recover.
As we approach the beginning the school year, kids may be anxious about returning to school. Your support will allow our therapists to stay in schools and provide support right at the beginning of the year.
Your donation of any size directly supports and sustains our life-changing treatment and services for children, youth, and their families.
$20 - Provides bus tickets for clients' transportation to and from their therapy sessions. The majority of clients we see live below the poverty line and cannot afford to travel to receive critical mental health services.
$40 - Provides snacks for our clients for two weeks. Many children we serve do not get three full meals each day, and snacks and fresh fruit encourage kids to attend their therapy appointments.
$100 - Provides therapy supplies for one clinician for three months. Clinicians currently pay out of pocket for the necessary supplies needed to provide support and treament to the children in their caseload.
