 New Art Helps Heal ArtPacs

help patients cope with COVID restrictions



To help our hospitalized teens during the pandemic we got the idea to create ArtPacs, individually packaged art activities. These can be given directly and safely to the patients in their rooms. On the first day, the orders were in the hundreds!


ArtHelpsHeal would not be able to fill these orders or fulfill our goal of bringing art experiences to these very isolated teens without you and a generous grant from the Chicago Community Trust's Young Leaders Fund.

The need has never been greater for Art Helps Heal's mission to provide the long-term adolescent patients at the seven children's hospitals we currently serve. 


In the future we hope to expand our service to other children's hospital facilities. However, none of this would be possible without the generosity of our contributors.
