"Head to Heart" provides professional psychological support with private and group therapy sessions.
Many of our Moms have had to keep their immunocompromised children at home, others are working though regressions due to stress and breakaway from normalcy, and some are bearing more weight and/or responsibility as outside support and breaks have been limited during these times.
Steel Magnolia Moms recognized the additional stressors the pandemic added to already challenging circumstances, and determined it was necessary to support our members’ mental health.
Read what one Steel Magnolia Mom had to say about “Head to Heart”….
““Thank you so much for this gift of opening my eyes and heart to therapy!! I have never done therapy and was a little reluctant because I felt like there wasn’t anything I “needed” to talk about. I didn’t realize what all I had bottled up and I desperately needed that safe place to get it out! Because I enjoyed that one hour so much, I am now going to start seeing her every other week. I know this will be a valuable resource to help me continue being that solid rock for our family where I try my best to hold it all together!” – Lacy C.”
Happy Camper(s) provides sponsorships for children with disabilities to attend summer camp. The child may literally be the happy camper, but parents receiving several days of respite will be happy campers too! This is so important to Steel Magnolia Moms because it supports our mission of encouraging moms to take care of their own health and happiness. To request an application for a Campership, please email email@example.com. Applications will be reviewed with a double-blind process for applicant privacy and unbiased selection. Recipients will be prioritized and selected based on financial and home situation. Parents choose the camp that best suits their child, and Steel Magnolia Moms will cover the cost. The average cost to send a child to summer camp is $1,000. Our goal is to send 10-15 campers to Summer Camp 2021.
Ultimately, we hope to also send children whose families can afford camp, and encourage the parents to reallocate the money they would have spent on camp on their own health and happiness.
