  • tree
    Our Tree of Light. Over the past year, clients, staff members, partners, support workers, and friends have all contributed to this growing community art project by writing messages of support and love. Each month, we choose a different theme for our messages which are based on current events happening locally and internationally. This project has brought forth voices of our community by anonymously allowing people to be heard, as well as to receive the advice and guidance of others, and a way to offer peace in times of extreme and unimaginable pain and injustice. Over 100 messages are held on this tree, all in support of one another.
