February 2021 Touch of Hope Scholarship Winners Announced!
“I received a pair of TouchPoints as part of the scholarship program. I am a grad student who struggles with anxiety and who didn't have enough money to order my own pair. Because of a Touch of Hopes, I was able to use TouchPoints to help with my anxiety and to help me sleep...a crucial thing for a grad student!! I am deeply grateful for the product and Team TouchPoints' generosity.”
– Elias Lawliet, Touch of Hope Scholarship Recipient

Deanna is the Child and Family Resilience Coordinator for a rural intimate partner violence and sexual violence agency. She responds to the 24/7 support hotline, fills in for the 24/7 shelter staff, and serves as the on-call staff to emergency calls from home 24/7–sometimes responding to sexual violence calls by driving survivors to the hospital in the middle of the night. On top of this, Deanna manages her time as an attachment therapist for families who have experienced severe attachment trauma, and even organizes with a social justice group in her small community. One can only imagine the stress she's managing. We commend her for her humanitarianism and feel elated to be able to gift her a set of TouchPoints!
