Here at Hammond Psychology & Associates, P.A., we pride ourselves on giving back to the community. We offer free groups to make resources accessible to everyone. We also offer free therapy for children enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay (please contact your BBBS office if you would like to sign up for this free service).
One of Dr. Hammond’s memorable giving back experiences was when she served on a team for a 9 day long mission trip designed to work on a building that would serve as the only church, school, and hurricane shelter for the residents of La Barquita, Dominican Republic. It was an incredible experience to help a community that was so appreciative for the facility. On the last day of the trip, about 25 children gave the team hugs as a thank you. The best part of this trip was seeing how amazingly grateful and kind the residents were for this new resource.
Additionally, Dr. Hammond has enjoyed outreach and “giving back” to various organizations, including Joshua House, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay, National Military Family Association, Toys for Tots Foundation, the Guardian Ad Litem Program, and she has worked on numerous other projects and volunteer activities to help others. We share this information with you because it is our hope that you also “give back” in ways in which you are able…so you too can help others!
