As a center, we believe that every family should have access to resources and knowledge that strengthen and sustain them. A foundational piece of providing therapeutic support is making sure that a family’s basic needs are met. We rely upon the generosity of donors to provide support for children and families with various needs. Your donations help alleviate stress caused by financial hardship or limited access to resources that families experience on a day-to-day basis.

The majority of The Center’s revenue comes through grant and foundation funding and the use of these funds is generally restricted to specific purposes. We depend on donations to meet needs that may not fit into the grant guidelines, such as emergency assistance to client families, providing temporary support for new program initiatives pending grant funding, funding program activities that fall outside of specific grant guidelines, and support innovative research studies.
