Why the Gingerbread Benefit?
While Triangle Family Services receives contracts with the Wake county and city of Raleigh – those funds are very restrictive. The wrap around needs of families in crisis is as unique as each individual. The dollars raised in the Gingerbread Benefit allow our credentialed case managers and licensed therapists to provide the extra time and attention needed to move people from crisis to stability. While we do bill insurance companies, on average each therapist spends 1½ hours with a client – far beyond the billing rate or amount of 45 minutes. 86% of our clients are at or below poverty and the dollars from the Gingerbread Benefit are crucial to stabilizing families experiencing trauma and crisis. For 82 years, we continue to be at the forefront of working with the most vulnerable populations.
