Meet the Threads
Who We Are
& What We Do
The purpose of Threads of Hope is to increase access to holistic, faith-sensitive counseling and behavioral health care for individuals and families at affordable rates. We operate as a Texas non-profit corporation and are exempt from federal income taxation under IRC Sec 501(c)(3).
Threads of Hope provides the service of matching Austin area individuals and families in need of mental health services with faith-sensitive mental health professionals who operate in private practice settings. For clients without access to personal funds or insurance sufficient to pay for needed mental health services, we can provide a financial subsidy to make such treatment possible. For clients who have financial resources available, we offers access to faith sensitive mental health providers.
Threads of Hope is committed to having 90% of all donations received go directly to client service.
Threads of Hope Community
Threads of Hope operates through a community of support generated by the interaction of our volunteer board of directors, staff, community volunteers, and mental health professionals. Our mental health professionals are fully licensed and credentialed and are committed preserving the faith-sensitive aspects of the professional counseling relationship. At this time 23 mental health providers have been reviewed and approved by the board of directors as part of the Threads of Hope provider network.
People in need of mental health services (our clients) come to Threads of hope by referral from: faith communities (i.e., churches, synagogues, etc.), information and referral agencies (211, United Way), medical professionals, word of mouth, and other mental health providers who are aware of our ability to provide faith sensitive counseling and/or financial subsidy in appropriate circumstances. Through our client intake process, we will evaluate financial need and other factors relevant to appropriate referral and offer provider options from within the Threads of Hope network of providers. In addition, the listing of professionals in our network enables those in need to access our providers directly.

A number of our clinicians offer individual stress management work and several of our providers are specifically trained in MBSR (Mindful Based Stress Reduction).
