Trauma Counseling


Our whole community was hurting after the traumatic summer in 2017. Different populations were specifically targeted by the violence, racist and Anti-Semitic chants, and intimidation tactics of the white supremacists. First responders and medical volunteers were impacted by what they experienced. Over $155,000 has supported trauma counseling services through the following organizations:

  • ReadyKids
  • Sisters Keeper Doula Collective
  • The Women’s Initiative
  • Community Mental Health and Wellness Coalition
  • Common Ground Healing Arts
  • Charlottesville Police Foundation

The Funds have also supported other community efforts:

  • Heather Heyer Foundation to provide scholarships to local students
  • United Way Community Table event in October 2017
  • National Compassion Fund to support individuals impacted by the violence
