Covenant House of California (*remote activity*)
We are now on a regular Zoom schedule with this group of young adults who are healing from homelessness within the sanctuary of the Covenant House. We remotely connect them with pro artists for discussions about building careers and portfolios in the arts, learning how to express yourself through creativity, and other related topics.
New Alternatives for Children (*remote activity*)
New Alternatives for Children provides health and social services to children with disabilities and chronic illnesses. It focuses on children in foster care and adoptive homes.
Bellevue Hospital (*remote activity*)
At this event, Jane Archer will lead the children in a meditation about “our best selves” then we’ll help them draw their own proud portraits.
