I serve on the mission team of a church that has supported the Headington Insitute work over many years. We have found their psychological and spiritual support for first responders around the world to be critically important. In the US as well as overseas, relief and development professionals and volunteers need the personal support that HI experts provide. This support ensures that life-giving work can continue!

The Headington Institute is filled with the most compassionate and caring people. They are extremely smart and want to focus their talents on helping aid workers. It is an inspiration to be around them. While their work is world-class and their transparency is clear, the quality of the people is what makes it a pleasure to work for them in any capacity.

Headington Institute comprises some of the best staff in the field. Not only are they skilled at their craft, but they are personal, accessible, and have a deep care for the relief workers whom they serve. They make sure that their funding is used for its stated purpose: to give care to caregivers. I have had the opportunity to donate and meet the staff personally. I am even more convinced that my money is being used well for their vital purpose of helping relief workers heal the world's wounds.

This institute addresses a critical need as it offers psychological and spiritual support for uniquely gifted relief workers who are "on the ground" in the most difficult of humanitarian situations around the globe. Through technology, they have also extended their reach beyond those they can physically touch by providing training, support tools, and a wealth of other web-based tools at no cost. This company is a great example of how non-profits should engage with the world at large.
