Over the last 18 years The ArtReach Foundation® has impacted over one million children and teachers combined around the world.
ArtReach training is conducted as experiential workshops for teachers, social workers and professional caregivers of children with trauma. The war in Bosnia from 1992-1995 killed approximately 12,000 children and left many times that number with lives that would never be the same. It was for these children of war that The ArtReach Foundation® (ArtReach) was originally created. 17 years later, the benefits of ArtReach’s therapeutic programs have stretched farther into the world. Thousands of children, who have experienced trauma in all forms, have been assisted in moving from traumatized to transformed through these programs. In the first five years over 250,000 children and teachers in Bosnia benefited from ArtReach programs.
Training in how to use creative activities through the use of the ArtReach Model®, meant that hope, empowerment and wellbeing can be restored.
In 2006, ArtReach expanded its efforts into the Middle East, and served Hurricane Katrina evacuees from the U.S. Gulf Coast.
In 2014 ArtReach took its work to Haiti to help address the residual effects of the 2010 Earthquake in children exposed to the natural disaster. The work in Haiti brought its expressive arts programs to the many children in that country who desperately need education on a fundamental level. The educational system in Haiti is often unavailable or sporadic for the majority of children there.
ArtReach programs help bridge gaps of need by providing teacher training and guidance that leave tangible evidence of an impact.
ArtReach will provide ease and educational support that positively impacts these children that live in such an ongoing fragile environment.
