MoveFwd invites you to support our vital services and become a member of our community. 

The past few years have brought into sharp focus the mental health crisis facing our nation and particularly young people in our education system. Even before the pandemic, students in our public schools were facing high rates of depression, anxiety, substance use, and other mental health needs. The pandemic has magnified an already existing problem. If we are going to reach these students with the love, compassion, and support they need to thrive, we need to invest more dollars in in-school therapy and mental health counseling.

MoveFWD has been committed to the mental health of students and their families in the West Metro since 1990. Our organization has been on the front lines of this work, providing barrier-free mental health services to over 7,000 young people and their families for over 32 years. Our team of highly-skilled therapists are able to meet young people where they are and provide them therapy and other mental health services for FREE. In 2022, our therapy team provided mental health services to students in nine schools across 4 districts. The generous support of donors like you plays a major role in our ability to provide these vital services. Your donation and donations from your neighbors, allow MoveFwd to remove all financial barriers that too often keep young people from getting the support they need.


MoveFwd is on a mission to ensure that every teen and young adult is safely housed and working towards their educational and life goals.
