Ways to Give

Idaho kids need your help

Our state has one of the highest rates of trauma in the country

Trauma has a dramatic impact on a young person's developing brain. When kids experience trauma, they react with a wide array of behaviors that prevent them from being able to function or thrive in the world.

Giving these young people access to proven therapies and services they need can stop their trauma from holding them back. By donating, you can change the trajectory or their entire lives. 




The difference your support can make

From July 2021 to June 2022, our donors:

  • Helped over 954 young people with programs and services
  • Provided 1,077 shelter days for homeless and runaway youth
  • Supported 3,330 clinical sessions of individual, group and family therapy
  • Served 87 families and children through adoption services, including infant placement, home studies, pregnancy crisis counseling and family support.

There are many ways you can help

For kids facing childhood trauma like abuse, neglect, and loss often one person is the difference between a life of despair and a life of hope. Donors and supporters help fulfill our mission. We are happy to help you explore our various giving options so you can make a big impact on young Idahoans.
