At the heart of ATOC’s mission is the desire to help improve the quality of life for people who have experienced severe trauma. Our small art therapy groups, run by highly-trained, licensed, clinical art therapists, provide a non-threatening therapeutic experience for participants. Ultimately, ATOC clients will see themselves as survivors of trauma rather than victims, and build the confidence necessary to re-engage in their communities and move on with their lives.
Your support enables ATOC to continue providing art therapy at no cost to underserved populations.
