to recognize unhealthy behaviors and stop relationship violence BEFORE it starts.

Stop relationship violence BEFORE it starts.

Megan’s Foundation is a grantmaking nonprofit and a catalyst for change. We provide grants to high schools, colleges and nonprofits for education on healthy relationships, to empower young adults to recognize unhealthy behaviors and stop relationship violence BEFORE it starts.

Children

You want the best for your child, but maybe at times you feel helpless or just don’t know where to start. We have extensive experience in Childhood Trauma Therapy and we know where to begin the process of healing. Let the healing begin today.

Teens

Teenagers today are facing more challenges than ever before. With the global issues we are all facing, there is a much heavier burden on them with uncertainty, anxiety and depression. It can be hard for them to talk to you as their parent or caregiver. Our therapists provide a safe space for your teen to open up, without judgement, about the issues they are facing. Let us help you by helping your teen.

Parents, Caregivers & Friends

Parents, caregivers, and friends who care for children and teens need care and support too. The weight of this responsibility, the feelings of helplessness, and how much of yourself you pour out to help your child or teen can be overwhelming. We are here to help lighten your load and to care for you as you care for them.

Professionals

We are here to be a fountain of resource to our colleagues that are working with children in our community. Our understanding of the mechanisms, practices and processes that help us reach these troubled children and teens are evolving. We want to be a resource that helps equip you to be the best resource for children in our community.

Resources

The more tips and tools you have to know how to manage the trauma, the sooner you can begin the process of healing. We have curated what we think are some of the best resources to help you on the trauma-healing journey. We update these resources frequently to give you the most helpful information possible.
