The Art Therapy Project is the only organization in New York City dedicated solely to providing art therapy at no cost to underserved populations who have experienced trauma. We need your help in order to meet the demand for services. Our program provides a proven therapeutic approach and creative outlet to help heal the most challenged populations. It is designed to help people get back on their feet, teach coping skills, relieve stress and give clients a chance to become engaged, active members of their communities.

A client said this recently about being part of one of our art therapy groups, “I have found an organization that has allowed me to explore and give voice to emotions that I had been holding in for so long. I have been given a new lease on life."

When funding runs low, who should we turn down: the request for additional services for homeless female veterans? We can't do that. The request for a new group for sexually abused boys in middle school? We can't do that. Or, how about the shelter for homeless teenagers; we can't tell them no.

"To know that I am NOT the only one who has similar feelings and emotions regarding my service has allowed me to come out of my self-imposed isolation."
