Mission & Vision

Mission

The Onsite Foundation provides trauma‐informed counseling and emotional health education that transforms individuals and communities.

Vision

To set a new standard for emotional health resources for individuals and communities affected by trauma.


HOW WE BEGAN

The Onsite Foundation was founded in 1987 by a group of like‐minded individuals who experienced the profound effect on lives and relationships changed for the better when given the right help. These emotional wellness pioneers established The Onsite Foundation in an effort to bestow the gift of healing to people who could not otherwise afford it.

For more than two decades, The Onsite Foundation has helped countless individuals, couples and families by offering scholarships to attend Onsite’s workshops.

These scholarships have been made possible through the generous donations from individuals and organizations all over the world — people who share the same passion and vision as The Onsite Foundation.


WHERE WE ARE NOW

The Onsite Foundation is charting an enhanced strategic direction in 2019, following another consecutive year of growth in 2018, and formulating plans for expanded programming for the next three years. More than 150 veterans have attended our uniquely curated Veterans Living Centered Program on full scholarship. Veterans who experienced the program found healing from anxiety and depression and reported leaving with a renewed sense of hope and purpose. The Onsite Foundation, with the support of The Peacock Invitational Golf Tournament, has completed its second Life After Loss Program for bereaved parents. For the first time, we are hosting the Ladies from Thistle Farms who are participating in a special trauma‐informed program for human trafficking survivors. Additionally, The Onsite Foundation sponsored a special trip to Uganda comprised of a small team of Onsite therapists who trained Sudanese refugees to heal from trauma. Our goal is to continue and to expand these global healing efforts that change lives for the better.

I attended the Living Centered Program and it was incredible! Through their process I was able to identify a missing piece with my healing/development that was keeping me stuck and determine action steps for change.

I also met some incredible, supportive people and it was amazing to be in a such a safe, vulnerable, empowering environment for a week. Bill Lokey was so relatable as he led the program and delivered so many "aha moments" when speaking in our group sessions. It's abundantly clear that everyone at Onsite truly loves the participants and are invested in their healing and growth. Everything from the grounds and accommodations to the food was also fantastic and it was a week of my life I will never forget.

Sending a huge heartfelt thank you to those at Onsite for sharing yourselves and your gifts with the world!

Freakishly nice and authentically kind.

Love this place.

The living centered program at Onsite saved my life, my marriage and my relationship with my children. It is the best thing I have done for myself as an adult. It gave me hope and restored my faith in humanity. I am close to six months out from my program and continue in big and small ways to use what I learned to have a better quality of life. It set me on a path I didn't think was mine to be on. A path of emotional wholeness. Not every day is a good or easy day but I now know I don't have to live in that place and have tools and support from the people I went to Onsite with. Thank you for all that you do.

My husband and I moved to Nashville a year and a half ago after he signed to a label in the area. I underestimated the toll his career and the move would take on my heart. I found myself weary, broken, tired, and on the brink of a relapse. My therapist at Porter's Call asked if I would go to Onsite. I said "yes." Then she told me the cost and I said "I can't." She connected me to The Onsite Foundation. Getting the call that my request for funds was approved was the beginning of getting my life back. Upon graduation from my time at Onsite I was asked what the one thing I was leaving with was. I answered "myself." Because of your generous donors, the hard work of your staff, and your incredible hearts, I was able to find myself again. Thank you for helping me find myself and save myself. I feel that my words do not express my gratitude enough. My husband and I have every intention of repaying this gift over time so others can be afforded the same experience.

I’d known for some time that wanted, no, needed the help that Onsite provides. I’d go to the website and read the program descriptions and wish I knew how I could afford to make a visit possible. Each time I felt close to pulling together the fees, something got in the way - my bathroom flooded, my HVAC went out, my dog needed expensive vet treatment. Yet I knew I was supposed to go to Onsite.

Then one day I learned about The Onsite Foundation and how they provided financial scholarships to attend Onsite. Their financial aid was my sign from God that I truly WAS supposed to go to Onsite!

Because of the Onsite Foundation’s faith in my ability to change, I was able to spend an incredible week in the Living Centered Program! I worked through heartbreak and shame that had held me back for longer than I can remember. Because of the Onsite Foundation’s support, I now stand in strength, looking people in the eyes, speaking my truth. I will be forever grateful to the Onsite Foundation for believing I was worth supporting, and I will spend the rest of my life paying that gift forward! THANK YOU Onsite Foundation!

I am blessed to have attended the Veterans Living Centered Program in early 2017. Wow, what a difference. Veterans are a unique group. We struggle to connect with non-veterans and we don't open up as easily as many people do, unless we are with other veterans. We are accepted by other veterans. Many of us have been shot at, been in combat, and that trauma is a unique trauma. We sometimes downplay the importance of how family dynamics impacts our families and current relationships. This program really helped unravel the trauma from both my military service and my family experiences.
