How YOU can help us
BRING MORE BACKPACKS
and
ART EXPERIENCES

to the 8 hospitals we currently serve

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.
