How the Athlete Assistance Fund Works
We want to eliminate any roadblocks you have to receiving the counseling and mental health services you need as a victim of sexual abuse, whether it be financial concerns or access to care. Confidentiality of your participation is our first concern, and your information will not be shared with any other parties including USA Gymnastics or The National Gymnastics Foundation. In just three steps you can apply for assistance and be matched with a counselor in your area.
Complete the short form on this site to verify your USA Gymnastics membership and to provide your contact information for our care team. You will only need to enter a few pieces of basic information to get started. You will not submit any details of your situation or abuse.
Individuals' needs are distinctive and unique. Our care specialists will reach out to you and spend time talking about what types of services you are looking for, what resources are available, and find the best solution for your specific needs.
Once our care specialists match you with a counselor or healthcare provider, your healing can begin. With a safe place to talk about what you've experienced, counseling can help regain things that feel lost like trust, strength, and control.
