We provide services to your friends, your loved ones, your neighbors. Real people with real troubles rely on our help everyday. Over 2,200 a year, in fact! SCS is a rock in our community and we have relied on donations like yours since our inception.
"As an immigrant and newcomer to Seattle I went to SCS. I felt supported and connected to community. I needed a job and through the Peer Support Services I now have a good job in downtown Seattle. I'm starting to feel at home here." - R.H.
"After my unsuccessful suicide attempt the in-patient chemical dependency treatment facility recommended that I come to SCS because they actually do therapy there and have a great reputation. A year later, I have rebuilt my life, with the help of SCS." - D.S.
Did you know that many employers match donations made by their employees? Some companies will even donate for hours you’ve spent volunteering. Find out if your employer can help leverage your gift and help further our mission to promote the health and wellness of our LGBTQ community. Click here for our list of Matching Gift Companies (PDF).
HOW YOUR DONATION HELPS
You probably know that your donation will help SCS continue to provide affordable mental health and addiction recovery counseling to the Seattle LGBTQ community. But you may not know that SCS absorbs the cost of many other services such as providing crisis intervention, harm reduction services & supplies, educational consultations & trainings, outreach and general community support. We are a safety net upon which our community relies when times are tough.
$55 offsets the cost of an individual sliding-scale session with a caring, competent therapist
$100 covers two group sessions for an individual struggling to overcome an addiction
$155 puts a client on the path to recovery with a chemical dependency assessment
$250 pays for three sessions of crisis intervention to victims of intimate partner (domestic) violence
$500 pays for a year of printed materials to educate our community on relevant mental health issues
$1,000 provides a year of weekly group sessions for a long-term survivor of HIV/AIDS, offering support, resources, and coping skills
WHERE YOUR DONATION GOES
Make your donation to our general fund and we will put your money to use where it is most needed. If you prefer, direct your dollars to a particular area or program--just indicate on your payment form: Project NEON, HIV/AIDS, Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence, or any other area you wish to specifically support. We'll make sure your donation is put to work immediately serving our clients - and your community.
