It is important to us to continue keeping our community safe during this time. After much discussion, we made the choice to forgo an in person spring event and will focus on online fundraising for GiveBIG 2022, but are looking forward to resuming in person activities later in the year.
GiveBIG–our regional day of giving in support of local nonprofits–is back, and Transitional Resources needs your support!
Thanks to the recurring donors we’ve brought on board, we have been able to forecast our year and our funding needs. TR still needs $25,000 of funding through GiveBIG to help our staff continue to provide personalized behavioral health treatment and supportive housing services to our clients.
Our services offer long-term solutions to long-term challenges. TR serves people who need ongoing support, without expiration or a deadline. Clients maintain their housing and continue receiving behavioral health treatment from us to remain safe and stable through their lives. We have clients who have struggled on the streets or in our state hospital for many years, who are now thriving with TR’s support.
One of the factors in this long-term care is the dedication and expertise put forth by our staff, especially our case managers. TR is a place that has seen long-term success because of our model of care, which is reliant on these hardworking, compassionate clinicians. Unfortunately, many years of stagnant public funding and growing need in our area has resulted in a behavioral health sector workforce shortage. Recently, the Washington State Legislature passed a 7% increase in funding, but this increase is not scheduled to go into effect until 2023, and the need for funding is now to attract and retain the clinical care we need.
Join us for GiveBIG to recognize these frontline healthcare heroes, and help people with serious mental illness stay housed, healthy, and safe for the rest of their lives.
