Resilience, the process and outcome of successfully adapting to difficult or challenging life experiences..." APA
"My daughter Skye, 03/07/1995 – 09/30/2014, faced incredible challenges with trauma. She died of an overdose at the age of 19 in 2014. Awareness on trauma informed care/response/approach was not readily available for her or myself at the time. I strongly believe that it's important and life-saving to understand trauma and how to live life and respond with an intentional, trauma-informed and empowered mindset. An integrated, trauma-informed approach for substance abuse and suicide prevention programming through arts engagement, kayaking outings and trauma education are a few ways in which we can build peer support, resiliency and empower our minds. Making these connections, enables us to speak out and ask for help."

WHEN WE EMPOWER LIVES, WE PROVIDE DIRECTION FOR HOPE AND HEALING. SKYE’S THE LIMIT FOUNDATION RECOGNIZES THE NEED FOR COMPASSION AND CONNECTION TO COMBAT THE SOCIAL ISOLATION THAT CAN LEAD TO SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND SUICIDE.
Skye’s the Limit was founded in light of the trauma-related overdose of 19-year-old Skye Gina Ratcliffe Pilato on September 30, 2014. After two suicide attempts, Skye resorted to drugs to numb the pain she was feeling in isolation. In her honor, Skye’s the Limit now educates the community on trauma, harm reduction, and self-care and works to provide safe spaces for youth to speak out, express themselves, and ask for help.
Your donation will help those living in trauma and silently fighting for hope by providing free, trauma-informed and resilience building programs. We empower youth, families, and communities through trauma-informed care support trainings, peer support, art, and wilderness therapy.
