Support Haight Ashbury Psychological Services (HAPS) this Giving Tuesday!
“I am so grateful to be able to afford therapy here at HAPS and have such an outstanding therapist. My life is changing for the better each week and my self-discovery and self-acceptance (sic) grows deeper than ever. Thank you.” – Former client
Access to mental health care is needed now, more than ever, yet counseling services are harder and harder to find…and afford. With issues ranging from everyday life stressors to disturbing and upsetting world events, people are finding it tougher to cope. Haight Ashbury Psychological Services (HAPS) has almost 40 years’ experience improving the lives of people in the San Francisco Bay Area community by providing low-fee psychotherapy to those in need, and education, training, and supervision to those who serve them.
Low-fee Psychotherapy Services: We’ve provided individualized therapy services to thousands of low-income clients in the Bay Area who experience depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, family concerns, past abuse, and life transitions. As one of the lowest-priced, sliding scale clinics in the state, we provide an essential service to individuals, couples, and groups who may not have access to much-needed counseling.
The Next Generation of Therapists: Our training program has produced almost 600 well-trained therapists who continue to help individuals in our community reach and maintain healthier happier lives. As a highly respected psychotherapy provider our internship program is highly competitive; each year, we select up to 15 masters and doctoral students from local Bay Area colleges to receive training in a variety of perspectives and techniques. As one former intern says, “I interned at HAPS and have to say it was THE critical element to helping me become a competent and confident psychotherapist.”
Unlike many mental health providers, HAPS does not receive third-party reimbursements from insurance companies. Instead, we rely on donations from our generous community partners and supporters like you to maintain our high-quality, accessible, and affordable counseling services.
Please donate to HAPS to help us meet our immediate goal of $12,000 so we can keep client fees low and continue training therapists who will serve our community for years to come.
Upon donating, you'll receive a tax deductible reciept from "PayPal Giving Fund," a public charity (Federal Tax ID: 45-0931286), who will then pay all funds directly to HAPS via a one time grant.
*If your donation is eligible for company matching, you'll likley need a receipt directly from HAPS. If this applies to you, instead of donating via the link above, please donate here and we'll send you a HAPS receipt so you can submit for matching!
HAPS is a nonprofit 501(c)3. Our tax ID # is 94-2924358.
