An intimate gathering this weekend with Boca Raton residents and business leaders was hosted by Deborah and Ted Bernstein at their home to learn more about and support the Bernstein Family Foundation (www.bernsteinfamilyfoundation.org) the couple established in 2007 to help children and families in distress gain access to critically needed therapeutic counseling, typically not affordable under today’s healthcare system. Its mission is to provide financial support to organizations that assist families and children in need of counseling and therapeutic services.
As more and more families are burdened with the issues of critical situational or chronic mental health challenges, Deborah shared that the Bernstein Family Foundation (BFF) remains steadfast in its commitment to help children and families access therapeutic counseling services when they are needed most.
“If more people had information and early access to services at the onset of a crisis, families might prevent something from escalating and ending up as a horrific and large-scale tragedy such as Sandy Hook or the shooting at the naval base,” added Ted who with Deborah and their company Life Insurance Concepts! are underwriting an upcoming “Shades of Blue” Luncheon to support Boca Raton’s Promise and the launch of the organization’s inspiring BOCA BRAVE community awareness and education initiative designed to encourage the start of much-needed conversations with family, friends and colleagues at home, work and play.
