SavingTeens Partners with Solstice East to Support a Family in Crisis

May 7, 2015 – SavingTeens in Crisis Collaborative (SavingTeens) is proud to announce our most recent scholarship. Through the support of collaborative partners and generous donations we were able to help another family find support for their teen.

The young woman was brought to the attention of SavingTeens through the pro-bono support of Robyn Egelson. The sixteen year old presented with a multitude of risky behaviors and a long history of therapeutic interventions. The family was desperate to secure funding for a long-term therapeutic care option for their child.

Solstice East has provided a generous scholarship for this family. Additionally the family, with Robyn’s assistance, has secured Department of Education funding. Taken together, and coupled with SavingTeens financial support, this partnership will make the plan affordable for the family.

Collaboration such as this enables SavingTeens to support struggling families. It takes a true community spirit to support families in crisis, and we continue to be incredibly thankful for the partnership of the therapeutic community and the generosity of our donors.
