Give The Gift of Therapy to Those in Need

About Us

At The Skylight Foundation, we believe that quality mental health care is a basic human right and not a privilege. Therefore, we would like to eliminate the barriers to affordable mental healthcare and aim to make therapy available for everyone. Our vision is a world in which access to mental healthcare is equitable and everyone in need is able to receive the support and care they desire.


Our mission is to make therapy affordable for everyone. We bring dignity to the therapy process and aim to provide low cost and no cost sliding scale mental health services in a private practice setting. Our providers are well trained and fully resourced to help those in need. Our goal is to create healthier societal systems so that our world is more just, equitable and inclusive.


The Skylight Foundation is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit extension of Skylight Counseling Center that provides top tier clinical services in a private practice setting to those in need.

Our Work

Direct Client Services


The Skylight Foundation’s primary objective is to ensure that individual clients receive high quality counseling services, and promptly. When a client reaches out to the foundation for services, we respond within 24 hours and match them with a therapist. We believe it is imperative that all clients receive services as soon as possible. When people are in emotional pain or distressed, a prompt response is sometimes the difference between clients getting the help they need and them giving up.

Partnerships With Other Nonprofits


The Skylight Foundation has also partnered with large nonprofits across the city that serve young adults from low income backgrounds. By partnering with these nonprofits, we are able to provide direct services but also offer general wellness, stress management and sleep workshops. These partnerships are critical to ensuring that young adults receive care.


How Is The Skylight Foundation Funded?

The Skylight Foundation’s work is made possible through money donations and grants. In addition, we hold fundraiser sales where all proceeds go to the foundations. Friends of the foundation donate vintage and antique items, which we in turn sell to raise money. Come check us out at our next sale!


Our Hope

Our hope is to inspire and model for other practitioners how to creatively raise funds for mental health so that individuals without insurance and/or limited income can access mental health resources. It is often times the most vulnerable populations that need mental health resources who can access them the least. We believe that with strong advocacy and tapping into our networks, we can come together and bring therapy to the masses.

The Skylight Foundation believes that its employees and applicants for employment will be free from discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, and, retaliation with regard to employment practices or in the workplace.
