EVENT: CrowdRise Holiday Challenge
Sometimes there just aren't words to describe the pain and fear of living with a violent partner or parent. When words fail, or are heard so often they become benign, victims can express themselves in the deepest ways through art. For a child especially, who has a limited vocabulary for description, art becomes a safe mechanism through which he or she can explain everything - fear, uncertainty, hopelessness and even what the chaos in his or her life looks like to that child.
Harbor House Domestic Violence Services in Kankakee hopes to give every client an opportunity to begin the process of healing by using art as a safe way to make sense of the feelings he or she might not be able to describe.
Your donation via this fundraising effort will help provide materials and opportunities for victims to express, then begin to heal, those wounds that cannot be accurately described in words.
