A Home Within is the only national organization focused exclusively on meeting the emotional needs of current and former foster youth. We recruit qualified therapists who volunteer to see one foster child, teen, or young adult in weekly pro-bono therapy - for as long as it takes. If you are a therapist interested in helping this group, we’d love to match you with a child, teen, or young adult in need.
Our national network of volunteer mental health professionals serves foster youth through 54 Clinical Chapters in 22 states. Each chapter's therapists are supported locally by a Clinical Director and Consultation Group Leader, and volunteering has a number of professional benefits. If you are a therapist interested in helping this group, you’ve come to the right place.
Through your membership in our expanding community you will:
• LEARN with colleagues and senior clinicians locally.
• CONNECT to a national network of mental health professionals.
• ADVANCE your career with continuing education (CE credits).
• GROW your practice and develop a strong referral network.
Above all, by providing one healthy, stable relationship to a current or former foster child, teen, or young adult, you can help a youth to break the cycle of chronic loss.Complete the form below to receive an application, or call 888-898-2249.
