The Trauma Survivors Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in the State of Delaware. The money raised through donations from caring individuals goes directly to providing trained therapists for emergency response during and after traumatic events, training to expand the network of responders and sponsorships to those that want to become certified and help carry out our mission. All of our services are offered at a national level. Anyone and everyone is affected by trauma and crisis. We want to help those who need our support.
Since the beginning of the Foundation:
25,000 individuals helped through crisis intervention
1,500 trained trauma therapists and crisis interventionists
1,100 crisis responses
5 years of service in the community
The Trauma Survivors Foundation seeks to improve the lives of children and families who have experienced a traumatic event by providing mental health services through a network of trained trauma therapists. We grant scholarships to high school and college seniors who are seeking careers in the mental health field in order to promote further research into trauma psychology. We help firefighters, police and EMS with scholarships to attend approved training classes. We train emergency service personnel to provide crisis intervention when a traumatic event occurs.
"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does"

How You Can Help
We need your help to grow and expand our reach to trauma survivors. From a motor vehicle accident or house fire to a line of duty injury or natural disaster, trauma can come in many forms but the pain is always real. By providing crisis intervention and mental health counseling to affected children and families, we give them hope and the ability to move beyond the traumatic event.
We need your help to educate our future trauma therapists and crisis interventionists. By providing scholarships and mentor programs, we want to help students realize their potential as a trauma therapist so they can help traumatized children and families.
We need your help to train emergency services personnel in crisis intervention in order for them to support other emergency services workers during a traumatic incident.
