We all have seen the faces of frightened children and caregivers in the aftermath of a traumatic event, be it a natural disaster or human-made tragedy. The challenges this places on parents, educators, caregivers and first responders can be distressing as they tend to the needs of the children for whom they care, as well as their own trauma. Across the country, research shows that first responders and caregivers are overwhelmed; more than ever, the need for effective methods of trauma relief is increasing dramatically as the front line for disaster preparedness resides in every community.

Demand for Second Response's unique PLAYshop methodology has exceeded our current capacity to provide much needed support for both caregivers and children. Consequently, we must immediately train new facilitators to address this crisis. We need your help.

There are many other ways you can support us too - for example through a gift of stock, or airline miles, or credit card points, or volunteer efforts. Interested? Contact Us and we'll make it easy for you. Thank you!

Second Response is an initiative of Fortunate Blessings Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit and a Guidestar Gold Participant.
