Mission & Vision
The Onsite Foundation provides trauma-informed counseling and emotional health education that transforms individuals and communities. The Foundation provides free tools and resources, along with full scholarships to best-in-class trauma-informed workshops, to ensure all persons have access to therapies and services regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or socio-economic status. The Onsite Foundation’s efforts are focused on vulnerable and underserved populations including survivors of mass shootings, survivors of sex trafficking, refugees, veterans, first responders, and parents who have lost children. The Onsite Foundation exists to ensure all persons affected by trauma, abuse, stress, or mental health issues receive the gift of emotional freedom.
HOW WE BEGAN
The Onsite Foundation was founded in 1987 by a group of like-minded individuals who witnessed the profound, life-changing effect that access to best-in-class trauma-informed counseling and therapies had on individuals, relationships and communities. These emotional wellness pioneers established The Onsite Foundation in an effort to give the gift of healing to people and communities most affected by trauma and who could not otherwise afford it.
For more than two decades, The Onsite Foundation has helped countless individuals, couples and families by offering scholarships to attend trauma-informed workshops.
These scholarships have been made possible thanks to generous donations from individuals, organizations, and corporations all over the world, who share the same passion and vision.
WHERE WE ARE NOW
The Onsite Foundation has charted an enhanced strategic direction in 2020, with expanded programming, partnerships, tools and resources during every phase of trauma, including: the Acute Phase (1-3 months post event) and an Intermediate Phase (6-12 months post event) and in the Long-Term Phase (12 months post event).
- Triumph Over Tragedy, a first-of-its-kind program, focuses on providing tools and resources to survivors of mass shootings to find hope and healing.
- Life After Loss program will continue with its third year, providing hope and healing to bereaved parents, thanks to the support of the Peacock Invitational Golf Tournament.
- Support in Service, expanded from the Foundation’s Veterans program to include First Responders. Over the past 3 years, more than 150 veterans have attended our uniquely curated program on full scholarship. Veterans who experienced the program found healing from anxiety and depression and reported leaving with a renewed sense of hope and purpose.
