About GFT

Growing Forward Together is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, established in 2020 by the founders Julia Seng and Mickey Sperlich. Growing Forward Together currently houses the Survivor Moms Companion program: a psychoeducational program designed to help women with a history of childhood maltreatment and other trauma navigate the perinatal stages of life. Growing Forward Together intends to be a place where trauma-specific education programs may be housed.

We are a welcoming organization. And we agree with this statement from the RYSE Center located in Oakland, California:

"If it's not racially just, it's not trauma informed."

Furthermore, Growing Forward Together does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender identity, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, the appointment to and termination from its Board of Directors, hiring and firing of staff or contractors, selection of volunteers, selection of vendors, and providing of services.
