Therapy West is dedicated to creating and maintaining a diverse, inclusive, and anti-racist environment for all of our children, families, and employees. Let us know if you have any suggestions to keep the conversation going!

Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism

Therapy West, Inc. would like to take this time to reach out to our clients and families in light of the recent tragic events surrounding the murder of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others. We are deeply saddened and outraged by the injustices brought about by systemic racism in our country. We stand in solidarity with the black community in the fight for justice and civil rights, and we take a stand against racism, bigotry, and violence.

As a minority owned business, we at Therapy West, Inc. pride ourselves in serving the community regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, ability, or socio-economic status for over 30 years and will continue to do so. It is incredibly important to us to take clear action as part of our goal to become better allies. In our efforts to make a change, we are committed to educating ourselves and our staff in allyship as rehabilitation professionals. We are also exploring ways to celebrate diversity in our curriculum, including but not limited to, providing diverse toys and books at our locations. We understand that this is a long-term process of growth and reflection going forward, but we are committed and steadfast in this change. We urge you to join our call to action, and make your voice heard by voting in your local, state, and federal elections.

We understand that this is not an easy topic to talk about, especially with children; we are here to help facilitate that discussion. Below is a list of resources available:

  • Sesame Street and CNN Town Hall on Racism. Please note that this is a live event on Saturday, June 6, 2020. It will be available after on CNNgo, On Demand at CNN.com . More info below:

  • Bookshop.org compiled lists on racism and race. Please note that these lists are compiled by individuals and change continuously. We have not reviewed or vetted all of them. We urge you to preview these books and determine if they are appropriate for your child’s age and if they send the correct message.

Thank You

THERAPY WEST receives a $5,000 donation

Therapy West recently received this donation from Doug Lee, pastor of Catalyst Evangelical Covenant Church and church members.  Their church used to rent Therapy West space on Sundays for several years. Pastor Doug’s daughters attended TWISPP, and church members often volunteered to support Therapy West family events.

Pastor Doug said that his church was led to make this donation in order to help support “the amazing work that Therapy West does in the lives of so many.”

As you can imagine, we are so very grateful for this donation, but most of all for their belief in the work that we do in serving children and their families in our community.  We are deciding how best to use this donation to purchase something special that will be therapeutically beneficial for our children.
