The Firecracker Foundation provides child survivors of sexual trauma and their families with high quality, consistent holistic healing services like individual mental health therapy, trauma sensitive yoga therapy and caretaker support groups.
Therapists qualified to treat pediatric sexual trauma survivors are contracted to provide services out of their current practice locations for children ages 18. Yoga classes for teen survivors between the ages of 13 and 17 years of age and children under the age of 12 are taught by instructors trained to provide trauma sensitive yoga therapy. In partnership with St. Vincent Catholic Charities, Caretaker Support Groups are offered in 8 week sessions for parents and legal guardians of child survivors of sexual trauma.
Therapeutic services are provided at no cost to children whose families are unable to afford care elsewhere.
Community members are invited to participate in Darkness to Light and advocacy training semi-annually. Volunteers, board members, contracted therapists and yoga instructors are required to participate in background checks and training to protect the children and families seeking healing within this community.
In the future, we will seek partnerships with area art and athletic programs to connect healing children to endeavors that will encourage them to find their voice through creative expression.
Invest now to build a brighter future for child sexual abuse survivors in the Mid-Michigan area.
