At Forest Institute, part of our mission is to train graduate students as mental health providers to serve the community.  In that spirit of service we are once again supporting a magnificent institution, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, which has a unit in our own backyard, Springfield, MO.  The care provided by St. Jude allows families, already experiencing a medical crisis, to have hope without the added anxiety of how they will pay for this world class care.

How donations help:

  • Thanks to donors, no family ever pays St. Jude for anything.
  • St. Jude speed their research discoveries directly from their labs to the bedside of patients and to doctors and scientists everywhere.
  • One child saved at St. Jude means thousands more saved worldwide.
