Helping Wendy Parker

On the morning of July 28th, our dear friend and colleague Wendy Parker woke up to smoke and flames engulfing her San Francisco home. A massive five-alarm fire had broken out on her block, quickly spreading to Wendy's residence and several nearby businesses. Thankfully, Wendy managed to get out safely— but tragically, she was unable to save her beloved cat, she has lost her home, and the fire destroyed everything that she owned. 

On behalf of Wendy’s team at Golden Gate Integral Counseling Center, I am reaching out to our friends at CIIS, our combined social circles, and the broader community. To recover from this tragedy and rebuild her life, Wendy will need to replace many of her basic necessities and personal belongings— but to accomplish this, she needs our collective financial support.

Any donations (no matter how small!) would be deeply appreciated, and they will go a long way toward helping Wendy to get back on her feet. If you’re unable to contribute money right now, Wendy is also accepting material things, as well as love, thoughts, prayers, and good vibes. 

Thank you for your support!
