    Free Arts for Abused or At-Risk Children

    The award would be used to support four core programs—Free Arts Court Program, Free Arts Mentoring, Free Arts for Families and Free Arts Days—free of charge. Each year, Free Arts serves nearly 22,000 children ages 4-18 with the support of over 200 volunteer mentors who donate 14,000 hours. Free Arts works with an art therapist, licensed child psychologist and licensed clinical social worker to create curricula that help children develop mastery, recognize, understand and express their feelings, and cope with the realities of their situation.
