THE STORY:

Over the past three years FRIENDS has lost over $100,000 in funding from local, state or federal government sources. Without these dollars, FRIENDS ability to continue providing critical services to abused children is in jeopardy. 

FRIENDS offers Art Therapy to children who are suffering from the trauma of abuse FREE of CHARGE! Art Therapy is the making of art in a professional setting to help people who experience illness, trauma or challenges in their life.  This method of addressing trauma is especially beneficial to children and youth is that it gives them a voice for their pain. Making art offers a child something to ‘do’ besides talking. Younger children simply  may not have the language skills to tell what happened to them or express their feelings. Older children may distrust "words" because their abuser probably lied to them and threatened them. While at the same time other adults may not have believed their words. The child's creation provides tangible proof of success and hope on days when they may feel sad, afraid or angry.

Your donations will provide healing, hope, and harmony to many children who are suffering trauma from sexual abuse or domestic abuse. Your dollars will help them learn how to express and manage their dark feelings and insecurities while at the same time look to a future which is bright and full of dreams. After all "Life is About Using the Whole Box of Crayons"!
