In honor of our 17th birthday last month, we partnered with Child Abuse and Prevention Services (CAPS) to raise funds for art supplies to support the utilization of the arts in their programming and services. With the help of our community, we are thrilled to share that over $800 was raised!
“The Alliance is continuing to seek ways to connect the community with arts and culture and we are thrilled for the opportunity to partner with an amazing local organization who makes an incredible impact on our youth through the services they provide in Marshall County,” said Executive Director of the Alliance, Amber Danielson.
This effort began in 2020, first in partnership with YSS of Marshall County. During the last year, we have watched the power of the arts heal and transform the youth at YSS. We knew this would be an impactful effort but we couldn’t have anticipated the depth of healing and transformations we would witness. With such a huge success, it was important and critical to continue this effort and spread the impact by partnering with another youth focused organization in 2021, Child Abuse and Prevention Services.
“The support from the community on this effort is amazing. Thank you for the opportunity to further strengthen families in our community. These funds will help spark their creativity and contribute to lifelong learning”, CAPS Associate Director, Nikki Hartwig, shared.
Child Abuse and Prevention Services’ mission is to prevent child abuse in Marshall County and the surrounding area. They serve over 8,000 children and their families in Marshall, Hardin, and Tama Counties through our various programs. Child Abuse Prevention Services works with children and families to cultivate a home environment where children can grow and develop to their fullest potential. They want families to know that learning with their child can be fun. Making homemade toys and supplying arts and crafts activities that promote parent-child interaction are great ways to encourage children to be creative while gaining essential skills.
