Grantee Spotlight: Family Tree Clinic
The 2021 George Family Foundation Annual Report will be available soon. We’ll announce its launch on our website — so stay tuned! In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek from the report. This spotlight is one of a handful of short features celebrating the extraordinary work the Foundation’s grantees are accomplishing.
Family Tree Clinic is a trauma-informed, community-focused sexual health and wellness center that incorporates integrative health, art, and mindfulness into programs and medical services. They believe in treating individuals as whole people and work to address the systemic oppressions and disparate access to care that profoundly impact marginalized communities.
“As a survivor of sexual assault and domestic violence, I was very, very nervous coming in for my appointment. However, every single person I interacted with — the individual at the front desk, the person who did my intake, the provider — was absolutely lovely. Thank you so much for your commitment to making people feel safe and cared for.” — Family Tree Clinic Patient
In November 2021, Family Tree Clinic opened a new medical and education facility in the heart of Minneapolis. After years of planning and thoughtful design, the new clinic is a beacon for our community and a demonstration of what is possible when people come together to create something bigger towards our collective healing and wellness.
“We are profoundly grateful for the thought leadership the George Family Foundation provides around whole-person care. The George Family Foundation’s investment in our integrative health model directly impacts thousands of individuals who seek care and services from Family Tree.” — Alissa Light, Executive Director, Family Tree Clinic
