What We Do

ACCESS TO WILDERNESS THERAPY

Sky’s the Limit Fund (STLF) supports youth in crisis and their families with financial need by providing funds that enable youth to attend one of our  Partner Programs. STLF is breaking through the barriers that have previously denied financially struggling families the opportunity to transform their child’s life through wilderness therapy, an effective form of treatment for mental health illness.  If you have questions, email grants@stlfgives.org.

COACHING SERVICE

Sky’s the Limit Fund (STLF) offers two comprehensive coaching services to support the youth, young adult and family post wilderness therapy.

Family Coaching Service: Offered to clinically approved families to help the youth and family with the transition from wilderness therapy back into the home. The service is led by three trained STLF Family Coaches who have years of experience in wilderness therapy, transitional support care, and traditional therapeutic care. Please click on their image to view their bio on our website.

Young Adult Coaching Service: Offered to clinically approved young adults to help with the transition from wilderness therapy back to the home or to an independent living environment. The young adult’s family may receive support through the Family Coaching Service. This allows for the young adult and the parent(s)/legal guardian(s) to each have their own coach. The Young Adult Coaching Service is led by Mackenzie Keefe who has years of experience working with teens and young adults. Please click on her image to view her bio on our website.

The Coaching Service includes:

  • 12 weeks of support with your Coach
  • Curriculum packet of psycho-education and assignments to help integrate learning
  • Weekly phone calls with your Coach
  • Collaboration with past and current mental health professionals
  • Support in creating a home care team for you and your family

Our hands-on approach helps guide the young adult towards a healthier, functioning life and the family towards a healthier, functioning family system by supporting and expanding on the new skills acquired during wilderness therapy.

STLF young adults and families receive the Coaching Service free of charge. This service is also offered to non-STLF young adults and families for a reasonable fee. For more information, please contact grants@stlfgives.org.

FAMILY SUPPORT FOR THE PARENT / GUARDIAN / YOUNG ADULT

Sky’s the Limit Fund (STLF) believes there should be no stigmas when it comes to mental health.  People are healthier when they understand their options and can make a choice that best meets their needs.  We hope to increase the awareness of wilderness therapy as an option for youth in crisis and, as a result, transform lives.

STLF provides guidance, parent mentors, resources, community outreach, and education to give families the emotional and practical support and strength to successfully navigate the treatment process. In addition, we host events and outreach activities to increase awareness and educate the community on the benefits and efficacy of wilderness therapy treatment.
