MaxLove Project. “Take Fear and Turn it into Courage … Serving Families with Kids with Cancer.” Some of the most dreaded words for any parent are: “cancer, brain tumor, surgery, and chemo.” One such Mom faced this dilemma with her son, Max, who was 4 1/2 at the time. As Max and family progressed through the news, the grueling treatments and hospital stays, Mom Audra Wilford set about to find resources to help Max (and eventually others) through diet, evidence-based integrative approaches such as acupuncture, home care with nurse coaching, mental wellness tools, deeper education about the disease, and perhaps most significantly: a social network to offer support, research information, love and hope.
The Teen Project. “Paying it Forward … by a Former Foster Youth, Human Trafficked and Drug Addiction Survivor,” In 2007, survivor Lauri Burns became a foster parent, and national foster youth advocate who founded the Teen Project, a Safe Haven for abused girls and young women. One such successful Safe Haven is Vera’s Sanctuary for Women in Trabuco Canyon. This 5-home, 30-bed facility provides full-time care with an extensive range of therapeutic and drug treatment programs, medically supervised withdrawal and prenatal treatment, as well as counseling and much more. The Project also supports four other facilities in Southern California that offer additional services and long term transition programs, job training, and the list goes on.

Applications are due December 15, 2022. Former TSO grant recipients of more than $1,000 in the previous year are not eligible to apply until Fall of the next year. Additionally, if your grant was greater than $5000, you are not eligible to apply again for 5 years.
To be considered, please complete the following application by December 15, 2022.
