Foundation for healthy living
We hope you'll consider donating to this new non-profit organization that is making a positive impact on families in Arizona.
MISSION: The Foundation for Healthy Living is a faith-based organization that provides education and financial support for families within the general community, while adhering to Christian values, without discrimination toward anyone who desires help.
Since its founding, FHL has been successfully supporting individuals and families at Family Strategies Counseling Center, providing financial support through receiving sponsorships and grants for mental health treatment, services, and programs. FHL has assisted many individuals in meeting their personal goals while instilling within them a dedication to maintaining lifelong wellness.
The organization's projects, implemented by Family Strategies Counseling Center's well-trained staff, emphasize character development and change lives from the inside out. Supporting the development of self-confidence, healthful living, good judgment, and character, FHL provides many individuals with a robust foundation for their future success.
Just recently established in 2012, the organization was formed by a group of stakeholders who were able to see the correlation between the challenges faced by those suffering from mental ailments in the Phoenix area, and the lack of resources available to them through private and publicly funded programs. It’s Executive Director, Floyd Godfrey is well qualified for his position as he possesses an extensive professional background in mental health counseling. In addition, his involvement with the community has provided him with many opportunities to enhance his communication and mentoring skills, both of which are vital to the success of the organization.
Some excerpts from our Applications for Financial Support:
“I am a single mom of 4 kids, and am going to school. My ex-husband stopped paying child/spousal support against court orders. I am working hard to better myself and my career. I want to continue my therapeutic work, but can no longer afford to continue.”
“I’m currently working on past trauma issues and making progress, but financially, I just can’t afford the full price. I really want to finish this program.”
“I was receiving services, but lost my job. It’s important to me to continue my counseling work, but I can no longer afford services.”
“I’m no longer covered under my parent’s insurance, and my insurance through my new job has a very large deductible. My income is not sufficient, but I still need help.”
The primary goal of FHL is to improve mental health within the community. Our mission as an organization is to increase awareness and education on mental health issues, with emphasis on directly supporting clinical services and programs to those in need.
In 2014, FHL provided approximately $15,000 to less than 50 individuals for mental health services. On average, 15-20 individuals per month were turned away due to financial hardship and/or insufficient insurance coverage. In order for FHL to address this large gap in the community need for counseling services alone, it needs to raise a minimum of $78,000 in 2015.
FHL is a member of the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and participates in Arizona Gives Day. Our profile page can be viewed here: https://azgives.givebig.org/c/GivesDay/a/f4hl. FHL is also a member of Local First Arizona.
FHL sponsors a free annual community event, Healthy Minds-Lives-Communities, to help inform, educate and inspire healthy living and well-being. FHL collaborates with several mental health agencies throughout the Phoenix area to reach a broader community, and to inform individuals of the healing and wholeness that would otherwise be out of reach.
Our goals will be accomplished through supporting the implementation of customized services that are organized around a well-developed prospectus. In support of our goals, the organization aspires to:
- To encourage and promote positive character development.
- Reinforce positive behavior.
- Stimulate self-motivation and self-discipline for personal excellence.
- Build long-standing partnerships with community organizations that share the same vision.
- Enrich the mental health services in our community.
In order to achieve these goals, we have developed the following specific objectives:
- To provide annual funding for a minimum of 275 individuals to receive pro-bono or discounted counseling services/specialty programs.
- To raise a minimum of $100,000 in sponsorships for mental healthcare and education programs through grants, corporate sponsorships, and individual donations.
- To provide a free annual community event, HEALTHY Minds, Lives, Communities -- A Day of Free Mental Health Resources and Workshops.
