Helping children on their journey to heal

A Child’s Light provides immediate mental health support for children and adolescents, ages 2 to 18, who have experienced severe trauma.

Following best practices and funding specially trained trauma-informed therapists, children receive the resources and tools to help them shift their severe trauma experiences to be a part of their past and not a part of their future.

Our Impact

Funding early intervention and treatment helps children to heal, build positive self-esteem, improve scholastics, cease self-harm, and most importantly, stop the need for self-medication with alcohol and/or drugs.

Our Process

Working with many community partners, we provide a solution to the range of challenges inherent in local systems. We seek to expedite support as well as overcome financial and accessibility roadblocks.

With specially trained, trauma-informed therapists throughout Chester County, we are able to reach more children—and more quickly—to help them on their journey to heal.

We are investing in our children and putting them, and our community, on a path towards a healthier and more stable society.
