The Trauma Survivors Foundation goal is to improve the lives of children and families who have experienced a traumatic event and help them learn to live life again. Those impacted: We provide mental health services through a network of trained trauma therapists. Those who want to help: We grant scholarships to high school and college seniors who are seeking careers in the mental health field in order to promote further research into trauma psychology. First Responders: We help firefighters, police and EMS with scholarships to attend approved training classes. We train emergency service personnel to provide crisis intervention when a traumatic event occurs.
For the past five years, we have provided thousands of trauma survivors with resources, education and training to aid their recovery. So far, we have impacted over 20,000 survivors of various traumatic events; mass shootings, natural disasters, line of duty deaths, motor vehicle collisions, sexual abuse or assault, physical abuse or assault, emotional abuse or psychological maltreatment, accidents, illnesses, medical procedures, neglect, victim or witness to violence. We help them to cope with and manage stress and educate them on ways to overcome their past. We provide regular training for them to help them get back into society and learn to be social again. The assistance we provide helps to build resilience in them and keeps their emotions in check as many of them struggle with these emotions and remain restless for a long period of time. After working with us, many of them are able to reestablish their daily routines. We have designed and created programs, procedures and processes to help these survivors get back on their feet. We have given and continue to give numerous scholarships to high school and college seniors who plan on venturing into the mental health field so as to further research and enhance progress in the field. We have and continue to provide meals for first responders during festive seasons and in times of emergency.
