The Power of Partnership:

Removing Barriers in Support of Women's Mental Health

Dear Donor,

The Wiltshire Foundation, a New Jersey nonprofit corporation, was founded to address inequities by shedding light on academic, environmental, financial, health, judicial and social barriers, through literacy. The Wiltshire Foundation is dedicated to serving all underrepresented, disenfranchised, or marginalized populations.

At The Wiltshire Foundation, 2024 continues our spotlight on health literacy and our ‘The Power of Partnership: Removing Barriers in Support of Women’s Mental Health’ campaign. We are currently funding an initiative to benefit the Women’s Outpatient Trauma Program at Princeton House Behavioral Health (PHBH), a division of Penn Medicine Princeton Health. PHBH is a leading provider of inpatient, partial hospital, and intensive outpatient services across New Jersey for patients with mental health, substance abuse, or co-occurring disorders. “The Women’s Trauma Program is an innovative model of treatment designed to help women understand the impact of trauma or early experiences in their lives. Women with a history of trauma or abuse may struggle with depression and mood swings, panic, and anxiety, eating disorders, addictions, flashbacks, and self-injurious behaviors. Traumatic experiences can include psychological, sexual, physical, or verbal abuse, as well as rape or domestic violence.” 1 The Behavioral Health Women’s Program, supporting hundreds of women per year—considered by many behavioral health professionals as the premier service of its kind in New Jersey—seeks to address the biological, psychological, environmental, and social impacts of trauma on their patients. These tenacious women have overcome the first major obstacle, to seek treatment or support for their recovery, and immediately face an often-insurmountable hurdle: accessing extended care for trauma, trauma and addiction, or life transitions, while supporting their families.

We are guided by a simple yet profound idea: improving one’s odds, options or outcomes begins with opportunity. You cannot benefit from what is out of reach. We strongly believe in ensuring underrepresented, disenfranchised, and marginalized populations gain equitable access to the tools that allow them to become powerful agents in their own lives.
For potential participants, the crucial benefits of this outstanding initiative will:

  • Provide transportation options
  • Address food insecurities for the duration of the 10-week treatment stay

To have a meaningful impact, we rely on the critical support of generous individuals and businesses in our community. The Wiltshire Foundation believes that an informed, engaged, and healthy community benefits us all—individuals and businesses alike. We would be most grateful for your partnership if you would donate to our cause and invite you to participate at the level you choose:

  • Silver-Level Patron, supporting with $500
  • Gold-Level Patron, supporting 1–2 patients with $1000 each
  • Platinum-Level Patron, supporting 3–9 patients with $1000 each
  • Diamond-level Patron, supporting 10 or more patients with $1000 each

The Wiltshire Foundation will provide a written accounting of the direct impact of your contribution upon request.

Our goal for the next 12 months is $365,000 to fund 325 women over the course of their 10-week treatment stay. Each woman will receive a grant of $500 in transportation or gas cards and an additional $500 retail card for use toward purchasing groceries.
