Children’s Healing Art Project (CHAP)


On my neighborhood walk with sidekick Hurley (the awesome dog I’m taking care of in Portland), we happened upon the Children’s Healing Art Project (CHAP). Fay, and the other lovely staff members, invited us in and shared that CHAP exists to bring the healing power of art to children and their families in crisis. The big fundraiser at the end of the year, CHAPlandia, is not your typical black-tie extravaganza, Fay explained.
