A Reason To Survive (ARTS)

A Reason To Survive (ARTS) is a nationally recognized organization that believes in the power of the arts and creativity to literally transform lives – especially those of kids. We believe in the therapeutic powers of the arts, but we are not clinical art therapists. 

We use all forms of art as a vehicle to create positive, long-lasting change and transformation in children and youth facing major life challenges. By providing a sequential program model of therapeutic arts programs, arts education, and college & career preparation, we provide a one-stop-shop for youth to move from crisis to college or career. 

We provide Direct Services to youth, Support Services to like-minded individuals and organizations, and Advocacy to community stakeholders and leaders about the importance of arts programming for youth.
