Poetry Heals 'Seeds of Change' Match Grant

For three years, Poetry Heals has brought therapeutic writing to people who are living distressed lives: veterans, homeless, institutionalized, recovering from addiction, and others. Writing poetry helps people identify, name, and work through their traumas and troubles so that they can better handle their lives. Poetry writing is a free, accessible and portable tool they can use throughout their lives. And poetry writing creates change.

Even after only two sessions, writers explain that they can find direction more easily, are more at ease, and have more tools to deal with their lives.  We are following in the footsteps of highly successful Pongo Teen Writing project in Seattle.

On our third birthday, Peak View Roofing of Colorado Springs announced a $1500 matching grants so we can keep up our work and expand to work with incarcerated and recently recently people as they make their transition back into the "real" world . 

Your donations go directly to the match! We have until January 15, 2019.  Thank you! You are amazing!
