BENEFITING: FOUNDATION 2 INC
Over the past year, Foundation 2 has been able to utilize grant funding to offer art classes to youth between the ages of 11 and 17 years old who reside at our youth shelter. We partner with Dori Patrick of the Dreaming Bear in Marion, whose classes both introduce students to the basic concepts of art, but also allow them to utilize the medium of painting to connect to their feelings while becoming inspired! This has been an amazing partnership. And though our grant funding for this project has all been spent, we would like your support to continue this powerful opportunity for the young people in crisis that we serve. Foundation 2 believes that connection to art helps our residents to broaden their horizons, keep their spirits up, and empower them with tools they will be able to use when they leave our shelter. Our goal is to raise $3,600 which will allow us to offer one art classes a month for all shelter residents.
