You have survived a lot.

By Tashmica Torok | Founding Co-Director

You have survived a lot.
You have survived a lot.

You are incredible. Surviving 2020 was no small task. You did it. You're here, and we are grateful. 

But survive is not all you have done. Somehow, while facing challenges that were unthinkable a year ago, you did something amazing: You helped make our year-end fundraising our most successful everAt the 2020, you:

  • Raised twice our goal for one-time donations at nearly $35,000
  • Raised three times our financial goal for Firekeeper Pledges at $9,000
  • Contributed to our year-end fundraising total of more than $56,000
  • Helped kickoff our new merchandise shop

You did that. While isolated from friends and family. While homeschooling kids. While in the midst of a nationwide mental health crisis. You invested in the holistic healing of child survivors when you have much to heal from yourself—and they will never forget it.

As we enter 2021, we are carefully plotting out services for pregnant and parenting teens. Here's what we are offering this year:

  • Birth Chat Pregnancy Support Group for Young Parents
  • Baby Chat Postpartum and Parenting Support Group for Young Parents
  • Baby and Me Guided Play Class for Young Families
  • Hello, Baby! Empowered Childbirth Classes
  • Pregnancy, Labor Support, and Postpartum Doula Support Services
  • 1:1 Planning and Information Meetings for Pregnant and Parenting Folks
  • Survivor Mom's Companion: Mentorship for Trauma Affected Parents

We know that no matter what comes our way, YOU are in our corner. Thank you so very much!

Best,

Tashmica Torok
