Brāv Lift’s mission is to provide free trauma therapy using early childhood development practices to address the disparity that children deal with after having been abused, abandoned and neglected.
We are striving to start with the foster care system because of the high rate of children in need. We are a nonprofit so any funding will go to paying therapists trained in childhood trauma recovery treatment. We are based in Utah, we will start in Utah with the hopes of getting a Brāv Lift program into every one of the 50 states.
We are trying to solve the problem of languishing adults by addressing the issues faced in childhood from being abused. If the issues are addressed in childhood then the child grows into adulthood with the proper tools to create a productive and happy life.
At least 5 children die every day from child abuse related issues. At least 3 out of 5 children are abused. Over one quarter (27%) of victims are under the age of 3. 1 teenager will commit suicide every 5 days, that’s 6-7 children under the age of 13 a month. It’s the second leading cause of death in teens. From ages 15 – 19 the amount increases to 14.2 per 100,000 teen males and for females it’s 5.1 per 100,000. We will provide the much needed trauma therapy to the group that needs it most, our children. By working with the foster care system in Utah we can make sure that the child who has experienced any type of abuse gets free trauma therapy. We can stop the above stated statistics from happening. Help children understand per their developmental stage that people love them and there is hope. A hope for a fruitful and healthy life.
The beneficiary is the child aged 2-18. I haven’t yet experienced the joy of helping these children. We are in our infancy and need funding to move forward.
Long lasting outcomes are that generations of children will recover from the trauma of abuse and therefore ending the cycle of child abuse.
The idea is to reach every child in need. Starting with the foster care system and moving into family courts.
