Helping youth express themselves through art​

One of the most effective therapies we’ve seen to help our foster children is Expressive Arts. This therapy combines psychology and the creative process to promote emotional growth and healing.

Our Expressive Arts program focuses on visual media through the compelling Walk-A-Mile Exhibit. The artwork represents each artist’s personal experience, trauma, hopes, dreams, and goals. The creation of these pieces gives the artists a productive outlet and a means of self-expression for youth struggling to find their voice.
