Friends! We did it!
The grand total for Giving Tuesday was $17,047! With the $15,000 match from a very generous donor, we will be allocating $32,047 to our Crossnore Promise scholarship program. We have three different types of scholarships through this program – Bridge (residential), Thrive (clinical therapy services), and Discover (Adventure-Based counseling), and will be giving over $10,000 to each scholarship fund.
Because of your support, even more children can benefit from these critical services on their pathway to hope and healing.
Bridge Scholarships help “bridge the gap” between what the Department of Social Services pays and the actual cost to house and provide supportive holistic services for our residential students. Bridge Scholarships make possible things like spiritual life, recreation opportunities, and travel. $1,500 provides funding for one residential child for one month.
Thrive Scholarships provide support for children who are uninsured or under-insured, but in need of outpatient clinical therapy services. Crossnore therapists are trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, individual and family counseling, as well as group therapy. $100 covers the cost of one session for one child. $10,000 is going to provide MANY sessions for many children in need of quality, trauma-informed mental healthcare.
Discover Scholarships fund Adventure-Based Counseling (ABC) services for children who are Crossnore clients. ABC is a group counseling program that utilizes experiential learning with engaging activities that help participants develop strong social skills and achieve personal growth. These specialized services are entirely funded through private donations. $100 supports five children using the climbing wall to build trust and self-confidence. $500 gives 10 children an opportunity to participate in our high ropes course. $1,000 provides two ABC group sessions for six to 10 children.
It’s not too late!
