Paxton Trust Emergency Fund
The Paxton Trust emergency fund seeks to fill unique or one-time needs of children in our local Loudoun community. Whatever the need, we are here to help. Sometimes, Case Managers, parent Liaisons or teachers, or even police officers reach out to us to ask us to help meet a specific need for a child. Sometimes it’s a necessity like shoes, strollers, or a communication device. Sometimes, though, it’s just to show some love, like new pajamas or a birthday cake for a 14-year-old has a birthday while her mom is incarcerated.
What’s Your Word?
“What’s Your Word?” is a discussion among at-risk teens to build community around self-reflection, while choosing a word of intention and creating a bracelet reflecting that word. Teens about life, what it means, who they are, how they got here, and where they are going. #mentalhealth #empowerteens
Tony Seang Memorial Fund
(currently not accepting funding requests)
The Paxton Trust created the Anthony “Tony” Seang Memorial Fund in March of 2018, posthumously named for a Loudoun-based Applied Behavior Analysis therapist who recently lost his three-year battle with cancer at just 38-years-old. At the time of his cancer diagnosis, Tony was a teacher/therapist who worked with students at The Aurora School on the Paxton Campus in Leesburg.
The purpose of the Tony Seang Memorial Fund is to assist special education therapists and students committed to furthering special education. For the past three years during Autism awareness month, the staff of Behavioral Momentum has held a fundraiser to raise money for the Fund in order to provide therapy educational donations to individual students. Thousands of dollars have been raised to date.
