2018 Annual Appeal — Donate Today

Many people in our community are living with barriers to their own well-being, from the extreme stress of poverty to the toll of generational trauma. Worse, many lack supportive and caring connections to help them weather life’s challenges. Alone, the quest to heal trauma and create a healthy community can seem daunting. But good things happen when we work together.

Your Gift Can Change a Life

SaintA’s mission is to facilitate equity, learning, healing and wellness by restoring the connections that help children and families thrive. You can help change the odds for people burdened by the emotional, socio-economic, and health consequences of past trauma by supporting SaintA today. Your year-end support will create connections that facilitate equity, learning, healing and wellness.

Connections That Heal

2018 was our 10th year of practicing and teaching Trauma-Informed Care, which promotes healing by recognizing the weight of trauma on people’s lives. In her “60 Minutes” segment earlier this year, Oprah Winfrey called trauma-informed care “life-changing.” And thanks to national and local momentum, the TIC movement is stronger than ever.

Equity

SaintA hosted a first-of-its-kind Community Gathering on Race and Trauma, which drew more than 1,000 people. It was sponsored by Scaling Wellness in Milwaukee (SWIM) on Sept. 26 at the Fiserv Forum.

Learning

SaintA’s public charter school, Capitol West Academy, is a National School of Character and has “Exceeded Expectations” on its Department of Public Instruction Report Card for the second year in a row.

Healing

Currently, 670 SaintA foster homes provide care and safety for children and youth while we help their families achieve healing and stability. This year, 228 kids and teens have been reunified.

Wellness

The Clinic at SaintA, which opened in June of 2018, provides behavioral health with an emphasis on trauma-informed care and the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics, created by Dr. Bruce Perry of the ChildTrauma Academy. SaintA is one of only 9 agencies in the world with NMT Flagship status.
