Donate today to help Discover Your Greatest Self raise $1,848 to support 132 individuals with free Lifestyle Recovery course services!
When we teach lifestyle recovery skills to people that have experienced trauma, we use peer-led facilitators to serve our online students. It can be challenging for traumatized, underrepresented, and socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals to afford these services. In fact, most victims who have experienced complex trauma become indigent due to these events, and successful recovery comes from being with peers who have had similar experiences.
When you donate just $7.00, YOU can help someone receive these services and transform their life.
Improving the health of underrepresented, underserved, and socioeconomically disadvantaged individuals can help reduce the chronic endocrine disease, mental health illness, and substance use disorder epidemics.
