Dear Friends of The Place Within,

We are honored to have been serving our community for over 30 years. Most of the services we have provided have been supported by client fees and donated time of volunteers. We do not rely on government funding or get reimbursed from the managed care system. To continue to offer our services and keep our fees affordable to those in need, we are looking to partner with you!

Right now, the need for community mental health is well known. Without any lapse in services, our center was able to pivot to the needs of our clients in March 2020 at the beginning of this current pandemic. Implementing teletherapy solutions has continued to allow us to help people manage isolation, increased relationship stressors, and a variety of new challenges. And the need is increasing.

We are currently accepting financial contributions to go toward covering the overhead costs of providing services to people with the courage to participate in psychotherapy. Your donation means that we can offer fee reductions when a client loses their job, or when a young adult is trying to gain independence and get on their feet for the first time. It may mean that more members of a family can get therapy after tragedy or crisis has struck. And it can allow us to provide hope to a couple who loves each other very much but are struggling with roadblocks in their relationship.

We are looking for people like you who understand the value of investing in relationships. Right now, when so many of us are divided, we could use all the help we can get to build stronger individuals, families, and communities. At the heart of all of that are people who need to connect. Your donation connects you to those people in ways that are immeasurable.

If you value wellness in mental, emotional, and relationship health, please consider donating at one of these levels:

One-time donation Monthly donation Category
$30-$180 $15/ month Donor
This category covers one weekly session up to one month of therapy for a person in need.
$200-$500 $40/ month Friend
For this amount, we can provide an entire family therapy for 1-3 months.
$600-$1,000 $85/ month Supporter
This amount of money can help us train our clinicians on the most effective interventions for complicated cases.
$1,000-$5,000 $100-$500/ month Champion
A donation in this amount can help us cover our rent from 1-4 months. A safe, confidential environment and a compassionate therapeutic relationship are the foundation for healing.
$10,000 + $600+/month Hero
This level of donation means that we can keep our services affordable while paying our clinicians equitably. It is the key to truly being able to have reliable, effective, compassionate, community mental wellness.

Thank you for taking time to pause and reflect on how you can be part of the solution to helping us all heal. Because the person you help may by your neighbor, co-worker, friend, or family member.

In deep gratitude,
Natasha Morisawa, LMFT
