Financial Assistance for GPC Training Events
We welcome this opportunity to consider your request for Financial Assistance for a GPC training event. We ask your cooperation as we seek to allocate our limited financial aid to as many applicants as possible, based on financial need and potential promise. Be assured that situations such as unemployment, loss of a home, divorce, or illness are reasons that will be considered for financial assistance. Information shared will be kept in strict confidence among the Financial Assistance Task Force and the training instructor.
Thank you for your request. Please email this completed application GPCA, Inc. c/o Rev. Deb Jameson at Debra.Jameson@gestaltpastoralcare.org. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
