BENEFITING: Healing Arts Family Connection, Inc.
“Feel the Rhythm” This program will be offered to families coping with a child’s emotional or behavioral disorder. A pilot workshop was conducted this past May and June of 2013 in Jersey City which proved to be a success for the participants. It provided a nonthreatening creative environment where the children were able to have their individual therapeutic needs met as well as have the opportunity to express themselves through music and dance interventions.
The program was developed and supervised by a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist along with experienced teaching artists. With your support, we would like to expand “Feel the Rhythm” into a yearlong program in order to enrich the mental health services to this high-need population of children and families.
