Our Mental Health Program

A common understanding of the term “mental health” is an important aspect of having a shared vision of mental health services. Because of the stigma associated with the term mental health, and cultural differences in how mental health is conceptualized, it is essential that centers and staff work closely with families and communities to develop a common understanding of children and young adults’ mental health that considers all components of life’s challenges.

The Lady Storm Foundation, Inc is in partnership with organizations that already have fully established mental health programs for consultations and treatments. Without a shared vision, we will not be able to combat this dreadful illness. We must define, streamline and implement programs and treatments to fight this illness that for once is at the forefront of a global discussion.

Our Community Development Program

Community development has been described as a conscious technique or process to solve social change problems; a process that enables communities to “collectively confront and act on their common values and problems”. The community development process engages in politics, leadership, power attainment, group dynamics, learning, and social change; thus, it is “multidisciplinary and draws from political science, sociology, social psychology, social work, and adult education”

Some of the characteristics of the community development process are as follows: community member involvement in problem-solving and decision-making; a learning process that is geared towards a change in behaviour and requires learning by doing; participants who increase their competence and capacity to manage their own affairs; and a grass-roots approach to social action. 

The Lady Storm Foundation, Inc offers high school and college students grants for their involvement in solving problems plaguing their communities.

Facts about hunger in America

 

  • According to the USDA, more than 38 million people, including 12 million children, in the United States are food insecure.

  • The pandemic has increased food insecurity among families with children in underserved communities who already faced hunger at much higher rates before the pandemic.

  • Every community in the country is home to families who face hunger. But rural communities are especially hard hit by hunger. Many households that experience food insecurity do not qualify for federal nutrition programs and visit their local food banks and other food programs for extra support.

  •  

The Lady Storm Foundation, Inc is in partnership with multiple food organizations to bring relief to families and households in Lake, Seminole, Orange and Polk Counties.  We sponsor food distributions and will transport foods to families and individuals without transportation.
