Beauty After Bruises
We provide the finances necessary for these patients to get the therapy, psychiatry, inpatient treatment, and other therapeutic services that they need and deserve. We also help by directing them to local resources as well as to books and other written materials that can help them in their healing. Additionally, the entire BAB team works very hard to educate both clinicians as well as the public on trauma disorders. This, in turn, helps survivors by providing their loved ones and care teams with the tools that they needed in order to support all survivors more effectively and with grace. We do each of these things while also offering an abundance of support, compassion and validation along the way.
You can learn more about the challenges survivors face with treatment availability,
accessibility to care, the financial burden, and more, here.
Our other primary objective is to create greater professional and public awareness for these disorders and the survivors who have them. The public is still largely unaware, but more devastating is the limited number of trained therapists and psychiatrists able to recognize or treat these patients. Furthermore, there are less than 10 U.S. hospitals equipped to take a patient in need.
We are in the process of changing that.

Go- Girls - Go!
May 19, 2018
Go Girls Go! is a program for girls in 4th-6th grade that is designed to improve the health and well-being for girls at one of the most vulnerable times of their lives. Research shows that girls frequently drop out of organized sports around this age and many become very sedentary. The program is designed with both educational lessons and physical activities – working to educate and empower young girls to improve their self-esteem, goal-setting skills, friendships, and increase their physical activity.
