The Impact of Giving Hearts Day

The caring hearts of The Village.

As we reflect on the incredible support we received during Giving Hearts Day 2023, we are thrilled to share the meaningful impact of your donations on our organization. Your generosity has allowed us to make significant strides in enhancing our services, supporting both our caring hearts, aka our dedicated staff and our amazing clients. Let's delve into how your contributions were utilized and the positive changes they brought about.

Empowering Staff with Specialized Training

In Minot, your support facilitated specialized training for our staff in Brainspotting, Internal Family Systems, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Polyvagal Theory, and Theraplay. These trainings have equipped our team to provide trauma-informed care, enhancing the quality of our services. The impact has been profound, with staff expressing gratitude for the opportunity to undergo these valuable trainings.

Providing Financial Assistance

Your Giving Hearts Day donations were instrumental in providing financial assistance to clients in Bismarck who were uninsured or under-insured. A grant was allocated for this purpose, ensuring that individuals in need could continue to receive vital mental health services. Additionally, we were able to purchase play therapy items, expanding the avenues for exploration and healing in therapy sessions.

Enriching Play Therapy Experiences for Children

One of the areas where your Giving Hearts Day funding made a difference was expanding our resources for play therapy. In Alexandria, we invested in a whiteboard to create genograms, aiding us in processing cases involving complex family structures. Your donations helped us acquire culturally diverse toys, ensuring children have choices reflecting their identity during play therapy. The update of emergency vehicle toys, a staple in play therapy, has enabled children to process challenging events effectively.

Your support went beyond individual and play therapy enhancements. We utilized funds for a range of additional training and conferences, including EMDR, Advanced Perinatal Psychotherapy, Stepping Stones Course, Gottman Couples Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy.
