The Schreiber Center for Pediatric Development has recently been awarded a generous grant of $15,000 from V Kelly for Children Trust. This funding is a crucial step forward in our mission to address the Pediatric Behavioral Health Crisis.
In the face of a pressing crisis, where according to the CDC, one in five children experiences a mental, emotional, or behavioral disorder, resources to address this growing demand are alarmingly scarce. At Schreiber, we launched our behavioral health therapy services in 2020 to directly respond to this urgent need.
Our goal is to provide child-friendly, cognitive behavioral therapy to help children manage their symptoms and reach their fullest potential. With a new behavioral health therapy suite set to open in Spring 2024, we are expanding our capacity to serve more children and reduce wait times for behavioral health services.
The $15,000 grant from V Kelly for Children Trust is a game-changer for our project. This funding will be utilized to furnish our new behavioral health therapy suite with essential supplies. From special needs toys crafted for autistic children to coloring and sticker by numbers books, therapy games, emotion posters, and journals – these are not just materials; they are tools that will empower our therapists to create a nurturing and supportive environment for the children we serve.
This contribution goes beyond the immediate purchase of essential supplies; it creates space in our budget to hire more therapists. By doing so, we can extend our reach and offer transformative care to even more children. This not only enhances our capacity to serve but plays a pivotal role in addressing the urgent needs of children waiting for behavioral health services in the Central Pa area.
To V Kelly for Children Trust, we extend our heartfelt gratitude for believing in our mission and recognizing the importance of investing in the mental health of our community’s children. Your generosity will leave a lasting impact on the lives of countless families, and we are truly grateful for your commitment to making a difference.
Donate today to help us expand our behavioral health services and serve more children in need.
