ARC The ARC Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to children in need of a voice. Established as a disaster relief effort, The ARC Project responds in a state of an emergency to assist children therapeutically when disaster strikes. In the months and years after, rebuilding a community is emotionally draining for our young, seeking security & identity. ARC’s mission is to offer children a safe and inspirational environment to express their feelings of loss, abandonment, confusion, fear, etc. by giving them the tools to paint, draw and color. With the help of volunteer Art Therapists and Art Counselors guiding these children, they can stabilize, feel refreshed and relax their minds.
