About Us

About Us

The Therapeutic Play Foundation is a non profit organization that has a mission to build a healthier, more resilient world through:

empowerment

Art

education

Play

We aim to assist children and their families to improve resilience and coping skills; thereby improving overall family health and by extension, overall community health.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is that we will support family units in an effort to stimulate the healthy, happy and secure development of the whole child:
+ socially
+ emotionally
+ cognitively
+ physically
+ morally
+ creatively

Our founding members were Black mental health professionals specializing in family dynamics and play therapy. Our underlying aim of our efforts continues is to decrease disparities in access to self-care opportunities and resources that improve health and wellness in Black families.

The Therapeutic Play Foundation offers community-based strategies and awareness building interventions that focus on family functioning and the building of self-care routines as an act of absolute rebellion.

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of ​political warfare.”

― Audre Lorde, a Burst of Light
