Healing The Voice Within Art Fundraiser - Thursday, October 4th, 7pm-10pm at the Liberty Grand
A one-of-a-kind art fundraiser that gives voice and healing to those traumatized by childhood sexual abuse, and will help raise awareness and much-needed funds for important initiatives at The Gatehouse.
1 in 3 girls and 1 in 5 boys will be sexually assaulted at some time in their lives.
Survivors learn to regain their voices through the powerful medium of artwork, which teaches positive coping techniques to address the anxiety, nightmares, and depression resulting from childhood sexual abuse.
Tickets available on the attached link, thankyou for your support.
