The Chester Community Coalition offers free trauma-informed programming and art therapy to children and parents in Chester who are survivors of violence. Counselling sessions are in the evening, so working parents can participate and are available year-round.

Every donation helps!

To do our work we need you.

Your support means we can offer free counseling for survivors of murder or violent assault.

We can offer individual therapy for those whose experience of violence is too recent for them to benefit from a group setting.

Your donations also mean:

  • We can offer families safe door-to-door transportation (via Lyft)
  • We can offer families dinner (safely pre-boxed)
  • We can send home craft supplies for remote art therapy
  • We can buy supplies for outreach, to start families’ healing journeys
