Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Community Improvement & Capacity Building, International, International Development, Mental Health, Mental Health & Crisis Intervention

Mission: Tributaries International promotes mental health by equipping community service providers with an understanding of mental health, trauma, stress, and basic counseling skills.

Results: Every year we equip over 300 community workers in developing nations to recognize and respond to mental health needs. From 2006-2017 we helped to provide meals for 400 children in Uganda and school fees for over 100 children. Translated Ebola educational materials for French-speaking areas and used our network of contacts for distribution during the West Africa Ebola crisis.

Target demographics: healthcare, mental health, children

Direct beneficiaries per year: Mental health and counseling training healthcare workers and church leaders.

Geographic areas served: Globally

Programs: Most people go to a church, social worker, or medical clinic when they are struggling with stress or mental health issues, but these workers don't always know what to do. Training church and community workers prepares them with an understanding of mental health, mental disorders, grief, and trauma along with basic counseling skills. This helps more people get the help they need, when they need it.

Perhaps you have an interest in helping people in crisis or you have an college degree or some level of training already, but have not done much with it. Well, here is your chance. Tributaries International is training lay people and leaders how to meet the needs of our community as well as crisis regions around the world. As a 21 year veteran of the US military, I know the courage it takes to run into hot spots when others are fleeing the same, but Tributaries does exactly that…not with guns, but with kind words, cultural knowledge, and wisdom. I am so impressed. They bring practical problem solving and emotional comfort to all. Furthermore, the training they provide others to do the same multiplies this ministry immeasurably. I can think of no more worthy endeavor to support.

Having completed the Mental Health training, it is as if all counseling courses I have taken in the past all came together in one beautiful box with a big red bow on top!!!! Now, it is only waiting to be opened and used!!!! All the courses now make so much more sense! I believe it is the inclusion of the Holy Spirit that brought it all together so beautifully! (and Lyn and Kay's teaching, of course!) Thank you so very much for all you do!

This is a team of highly professional individuals with huge hearts for helping others in so many areas! My husband and I have been financially supporting Tributaries International since it's inception and Friends of Touch prior to that. Their dedication to mental health has resulted in tremendous positive outcomes, for the individual to the family, to the community. The training they provide is top notch. We are so happy to be a part of this team!

This Organization works very well at equipping people who have experienced hardships and trauma to their communities by equipping and training leaders to meet the challenges helping those struggling to overcome their difficulties. I joined them on a trip to Nepal and was very pleased to see their professionalism, dedication, and love to serve the needs of the people there.

I have worked with the Friends of TOUCH since 2006. This organization is one of integrity and true love of children. I have met many of these kids in person and watched them grow from shy down cast children with no hope to ones who express true joy and have plans for their future all because someone cared enough to help them. They are truly grateful for the chance to go to school and better their lives.

They provide not only education but much needed nutritional meals and some medical care. Some of these children were literally saved from death by the care provided from this organization. I highly recommend this organization because they follow through with their promises and work diligently to improve the lives of kids.
