Many folks who I see in my private therapy practice have very challenging financial situations. Even with a greatly reduced sliding scale rate, their fees represent a big financial commitment to wellness. Though they struggle to make ends meet, they continue to do the work because to do otherwise would mean remaining stuck in unbearable situations.
I was overjoyed to learn that a client of mine received a Washington Women in Need grant, so she could continue our work together. With her WWIN grant, she can focus on doing the work to get herself on track towards a healthy future for herself and her family, while easing the financial pressure that comes with ongoing therapy. Since receiving the grant, I can see a renewed sense of hope and optimism that she can actively meet the needs of herself and her family.
If you are or know of a woman of limited means in need of health/educational services, please visit www.wwin.org to find out about qualifying for a grant. Help is out there!
