Give an Hour's mission is to develop national networks of volunteers capable of responding to both acute and chronic conditions that arise within our society.
In 2018 alone, our nearly 7,000 volunteer mental health providers have given 42,000 hours of care through Give an Hour. That equals 115 hours of support a day to help those who are experiencing mental health challenges including trauma, loss and anxiety.
We built this network because people like you believe in our mission. When I founded Give an Hour in 2005, it was to address the mental health needs of our veterans, service members, and their families. In 2015, Give an Hour expanded to address the mental health needs of other populations including at risk teens, survivors of gun violence and those affected by natural disasters and man-made traumas.
To date, Give an Hour providers have donated more than 297,000 hours of free care valued at more than $29 million and we remain committed to identifying the emerging mental health needs of Americans so that we can care for them through our programs and services.
Just as Americans line up to give blood after major disasters, Give an Hour providers also stand by to offer mental health care to those affected by trauma. After Parkland, we were there. After Hurricane Florence, we were there. After Tree of Life and Thousand Oaks, we were there. And we will be there for the next community or national disaster.
We couldn't do the important work that we do without the support of our generous providers, sponsors, donors and volunteers. Our providers offer their expertise and time at no cost.
Give an Hour’s mission is to develop national networks of volunteers capable of responding to both acute and chronic conditions that arise within our society. By harnessing the skill and expertise of volunteer professionals, we are able to increase the likelihood that those in need receive the support and care they deserve.
We believe that within our communities we have the resources to address many of the challenges that face our society. These challenges, such as time in military service or victims of crime, often result in emotional pain and suffering. By harnessing the skills and generosity of citizens across our nation and around the world, we provide those in need with help and hope. We offer those who care the opportunity to give.
