Raising Funds to Expand Our Art Therapy Program!
Please consider supporting Hearts & Homes for Youth's Art Therapy program so we can expand our services to all of the youth in our care! Expressing oneself through art is a safe, effective and healthy way to deal with trauma and loss. develop and manage their behavior and feelings, reduce their stress and improve their self esteem.
For the teenage girls in our care at Mary’s Mount Group Home, who have experienced abuse, neglect and other trauma, art can be an extremely therapeutic activity. We have seen firsthand how effective it is to the youth’s overall well-being and for some, art therapy has been the integral component to their healing and recovery.
This is why we are asking for your help to fund #artforhearts, to enable us to expand our art therapy program to all of the youth in our care. Our youth are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to express themselves artistically! Donate $10, $25, $50 or more today to support Hearts & Homes for Youth’s art therapy program this holiday season! $25 would provide for one art therapy session for youth at a group home.
