WOMEN’S WAY GIVES IMMEDIATE RESPONSE ACTION FUND GRANT
WOMEN’S WAY is thrilled to give a $10,000 grant award to Therapy Center of Philadelphia to address the recent increase in demand for TCP’s transgender-affirming, affordable psychotherapy services. From receiving the completed grant application to approving and disbursing the award, WOMEN’S WAY was able to leverage funds from the Immediate Response Action Fund in 10 business days!
From Executive Director Alison Gerig, LCSW: “There is a particularly hostile climate out there for trans people right now. Our callers are in heightened states of fear, anxiety, and panic around gender markers and safety for themselves and their families. The calls we have received are beyond our capacity. With this award, TCP will be able to offer mental health support and advocacy to meet this spike in demand for help.”
