Dream Big - PSP counseling was formed after a need was identified by PSP Professional Services, Inc. PSP Professional Services, Inc. is a small group practice located on the historic northside of Fort Worth that provides counseling services to children, adolescents and adults since 2005. The historic northside is a traditionally an underserved population due to lower socio-econmic status and language barriers. During the past 14 years, PSP Professional Services has provided pro-bono and reduced services to the community. However, the need is bigger than what PSP Professional Services, Inc. can provide. Thus, Dream Big - PSP Counseling was formed. Dream Big - PSP Counseling received notice of acceptance as a 501(c)3 organization in September 2018. Since then, Dream Big has held multiple fundraisers that include dinner at Panera Bread and Texas de Brazil. In addition, Dream Big has held multiple yard sales and more recently partnered with the Little Art Bus and hosted two painting fundraisers. Dream Big is also busy applying for grants and was awarded its first grant by BNSF. With the funds raised, Dream Big - PSP Counseling will be hosting its first Color Me Creative Camp for children and teens that do not have insurance coverage. PSP Professional Services, Inc has hosted this camp for several years and statistics show that children that participate in this camp are less likely to require a higher level of care such as partial hospitalization or inpatient hospitalization. Our goal is to provide services to the community to help them learn health coping skills and to become productive members of society. Dream Big - PSP Counseling will also being providing services, at no cost, to four families at the Family Resource Center - Forest Oak that is part of the Fort Worth Independent School District.
Because Dream Big - PSP Counseling is new, our primary focus is to obtain funds to be able to provide counseling services. PSP Professional Services, Inc. will continue to provide space and assist with the logistics, thus the majority of the money collected will be used for direct client care. Dream Big is also working on obtaining marketing materials as well as business cards and traditional office needs.
