Helping children on their journey to heal

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

Following best practices and funding pre-licensed and licensed therapists with trauma informed perspective and training, 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.
