Frequently Asked Questions

What are Lionheart Foundation subsidies?

Lionheart Foundation subsidies cover counselling, therapy and therapeutic supports for clients and families in need. These services are delivered by qualified counsellors, therapists and nutritionists that have been approved by the Foundation.

Who is eligible to receive a Lionheart Foundation Subsidy?

Lionheart Foundation considers the social and economic barriers facing families who apply for subsidies. Clients and families who are unable to afford the private practice rate of therapy, counselling or therapeutic services are eligible for financial assistance.

Those who financially qualify for a subsidy must also be an adolescent girl or young woman between 12- 25 years of age.

What does a Lionheart Foundation Subsidy cover?

Lionheart Foundation subsidies cover the cost of treatment to a maximum of $100/per hour. The Foundation recognizes that special circumstances may exist where an increased subsidy amount is required. These will be considered and approved on an individual basis.

Subsidies are granted for individual therapy, counselling or nutrition counselling by Lionheart Foundation approved agents only.  Further subsidies are also given to cover therapy and therapeutic supports that fall within the scope of the charitable purposes of the Foundation.

How long do subsidies last?

Subsidies are provided for six months. After this period expires, your therapist will advise the Foundation of any further supports that are required.

Subsidy applications are generally processed within 72 hours of receipt.
