I am honored to be a part of a therapy mission that will be traveling to Jamaica to teach caregivers basic therapy skills in the fall. I am hoping that I can share my unique experiences and skills with the caregivers that will aide them in providing supports for those in need. This is my first therapy mission trip and I hope I can be apart of something that is greater than anything I could ever imagine. I hope to use the skills learned on this trip to make me a better therapist.
Therapy Missions is a non-profit organization and the cost of the trip is on the traveling therapists (such as myself). Any donations would be sent directly to Therapy Missions to assist with the costs of transportation, boarding, food and other supplies for the traveling therapists. Thank you for your consideration.
Funds pledged to this campaign are eligible for a tax deduction as Therapy Missions is IRS approved as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
Our Mission in Mandeville...
Therapy Missions has been sending teams of professional rehabilitation therapists (OTs, PTs, and Speech & Language) to Jamaica since 2012 to TEACH caregivers basic therapy skills through hands-on and classroom learning; enabling those we teach to TREAT individuals using greater knowledge and skill; and empowering those we mentor to TRAIN others. This will be our first visit to Mandeville.

Our Impact at the Gift of Hope...
Our experience has shown us that using the Teach, Treat, & Train approach to the caregivers' learning and development has a strong ripple effect... it builds sustainability and self-sufficiency in the communities we serve, while producing lasting positive health outcomes for the children of Gift of Hope, who are living with severe developmental and physical disabilities.
