People change lives

Because of you we can make a larger impact through our programs and services – the connections and investment of so many people have inspired positive change in thousands of lives. Here are just a few of those stories. 

Walk a Mile art show.

Local artist and youth advocate, Micala Gingrich Gaylord works with EmberHope Youthville’s residential youth as part of a trauma-based, expressive arts program on the Newton campus.

The artwork represents each artist’s personal experience, trauma, hopes, dreams, and goals. EmberHope Youthville’s expressive arts program strives to provide a productive outlet
and a means of self-expression for youth struggling to find their voice.

You are invited to “Walk-A-Mile in their shoes” to inspire hope, healing, and action for children who have faced unimaginable levels of trauma.

Where to find the Walk-A-Mile art exhibit

This year’s theme is “Past, Present, and Future”, a representation of the hopes and dreams for the girls in our residential program’s futures.

Mark Arts galleries are open to the public from 10 am-5 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is FREE.
