Your gift empowers families like Sophie's to build healthy, hopeful, happy futures.

Sophie spent her sixth birthday huddled in the corner of her bedroom to escape the sounds of her mother being beaten. Though afraid, she was grateful when police arrived to arrest her stepfather. The officers helped her mom get medical attention and provided information about ALIVE.

Weeks later, Sophie's mom started counseling. She told her ALIVE therapist about Sophie's temper tantrums and regressive behaviors after witnessing the assault. Sophie began to work with an ALIVE children's therapist, Barb. Barb used play therapy to help Sophie express her emotions, and taught Sophie healthy ways to address her feelings. Soon, Sophie returned to being the happy six-year-old she once was.

"I love seeing Ms. Barb at ALIVE. Coming here made my heart smile again!"- Sophie
