Art Helps Heal is recognized by the United States Treasury IRS as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit whose mission it is to provide quality art materials and self-directed lessons, and project books along with a website for hospitalized teens.
Our Teen Patient Advisor, Rosie Colucci. demonstrates two of our Art Healing Kits created and designed by Secretary/Treasurer Shirley Forpe.
It's an easy and fun way to raise money so we can continue to serve all eight children's hospitals in Chicago.
Art Helps Heal is a small all-volunteer charity so any donation you make to help us reach our goal will make a BIG difference in the purchase of art materials and developing new projects to provide meaningful art experiences to adolescent patients in eight Chicago hospitals and wards.
