ART for ADVOCACY will be held on Saturday, November 7th at F.I.G. (Fashion Industry Gallery). The event celebrates the transformative power of art therapy in helping children process trauma and heal emotional scars as a result of abuse. Proceeds support DCAC’s work in improving the lives of abused children in Dallas County and providing national leadership on child abuse issues. The event draws 800+ community and business leaders, young professionals, local arts organizations, artists and gallerists, art collectors, and art patrons.

ART for ADVOCACY CELEBRATES THE POWER OF PROCESS

DCAC provides therapy free of charge to child abuse victims and their non-offending family members for as long as they need. Therapy enables children who have been abused to develop a healthy self-image, to learn to trust again, and to identify ways to protect themselves from further victimization. Specially trained and licensed therapists work with child victims on complex issues such as trauma, shame, embarrassment, safety, and self-esteem stemming from their abuse. DCAC is thankful to be able to provide multiple modalities of therapy to our clients, including play, music, animal-assisted, and art therapy.

Proceeds from ART for ADVOCACY support DCAC’s work in improving the lives of abused children in Dallas County and providing national leadership on child abuse issues.
