Social Hour – Spring

For the past two years in May, we have hosted a fun Social Hour for our It’s About T.I.M.E. (Trauma-Informed Movement in Education) program in local schools. We kicked off the annual event at Timeless Pints Brewery in Lakewood. The community plays a critical part in the success of the program and due to the support thus far, more educators have been equipped with a trauma-informed lens and It’s About T.I.M.E. Calming Toolkits, meaning more students have been supported through trauma-informed relationships.

It’s About T.I.M.E. supports school staff in understanding that many children have endured ongoing, significant life stressors and traumatic experiences, and that trauma can inhibit students’ ability to succeed in the traditional classroom environment. The goal of this program is to equip staff with tools to understand and help children experiencing negative impacts of trauma through a “trauma-informed” lens that promotes healthy bonds, which are scientifically proven to help students’ brains heal emotionally and develop academically.

Our 3rd annual It’s About T.I.M.E. Social Hour will be held at Liberation Brewing Co. in Long Beach on Thursday, May 16, 2019, 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Click here for sponsorship opportunities, now available. Tickets coming soon!

Sunset Sip – Fall

Each fall, friends and supporters of The Guidance Center come together to raise funds to support critical mental health services for our community’s most disadvantaged children and families at our Sunset Sip benefit.

Adopt-A-Family – Winter

The holidays for our families can be especially difficult. Our clients and their families come from all different backgrounds and face complicated issues. Some families are headed by single parents or are multi-generational. Some are victims of domestic or community violence. Some are seeking treatment for mental health conditions or learning to cope with a loss within their family. Each working hard to make ends meet year-round.

Every year, thoughtful Adopt-a-Family donors provide so much joy for the season and hope for the New Year to our families. We are inspired by their compassion and so grateful for their generosity.
