TSSNT always needs more money. Since the beginning, however, all of us affiliated with TSSNT have shared the vision of a more "trauma-informed" community. That's why we value high quality trauma therapy for those without the ability to pay. It's also the reason we offer high quality trauma therapy training for therapists throughout the State of Texas. Whatever it takes for as long as it takes for that to happen will make our dream of a trauma-informed community come true.
We are not naïve, however. We know there are the haves and the have-nots, and the gap between them continues to widen. Isn't it great to know that at TSSNT those differences do not matter? No one affiliates with us through a "pay" gate or a "no-pay gate." We sit together in therapy sessions. We greet one another in our offices' "Welcoming Areas." We participate together in TSSNT's Trauma Care Institute's free trainings, regardless of our incomes. We work together as volunteers.
Of course, some make donations to pay the bills for all of us. Granting organizations recognize the value of what we are doing and share their wealth with us. We are endlessly grateful for all of them.
If you tend to live on the "haves" end of the socio-economic level, you might consider regular donations to help us continue to fulfill our mission. Regardless of where you are on the socio-economic scale, maybe you can think of other ways we can work together to ensure a trauma-informed community. What an amazing reason to participate, however you can, in this very extraordinary organization.
In the meantime, come on in and make yourself at home. Whether you come to give or to receive, there is no charge!
Whatever it takes, for as long as it takes......
