Therapy Scholarship Fund
The Charlyne McFarland Therapy Scholarship (CMT) was founded in January 2020 to honor the memory of BGS' founder's grandmother, Charlyne McFarland. Charlyne McFarland dedicated her life's work to providing social services to the most vulnerable and under-served communities.
The CMT scholarship fund aims to eliminate the financial burden of seeking therapy for young African American women. Through the CMT scholarship, BGS is able to offer culturally and racially sensitive resources to meet therapeutic needs . The CMT scholarship provides 100% cost coverage for between 2-6 months of therapy sessions with a licensed mental health professional.
