The Key and Candle Foundation was created in 2005. The mission of the Foundation is to provide partial or full scholarships for people to receive psychotherapeutic services. The scholarships are awarded on a combination of financial and clinical needs, determined by one or more members of the review committee and of the board of directors. Once applications are approved, there is a continual review process to determine if the recipient is motivated and cooperating with the treatment. Scholarships are awarded for a series of 20 sessions and extensions can be requested, based on clinical needs.
The Foundation, in its effort to be a positive influence community wide, will also sponsor educational workshops on topics related to parenting, mental health issues, behavioral issues, substance abuse issues and more. Workshops can be tailored to meet the needs of the community.
If you have any questions or would like to apply for a scholarship, or discuss a possible workshop, contact Gary Silverstein, Executive Director of The Therapy Center at 914-242-0725.
