One of a kind! They have a great youth program for aspiring artists and they participate in the community such as in the Thursday night Art walks and youth outreach programs. Everyone is made to feel welcome and at home. I volunteer as a scrapbook teacher and am a mom of a youth art teacher. They have the best mental health advocacy in this area.

I found out about PRAP through my involvement with a BHRS program's painting group. Since my first visit here, the Peer Recovery Art Project Gallery has become a second home for me. The environment is so open welcoming that this normally-introverted person is able to interact with fellow artists, art enthusiasts, and other peers. I look forward to staying with this group of awesome people for many years to come!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I have made some really cool new friends here.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

It has helped to elevate my self-confidence. I have now promoted my introverted status to that of a situational extrovert/ :D

I love Peer Recovery Art Project! I am a jewelry artists tat was invited to share my experience, strength and hope with gallery. I believe that Peer Recovery Art Project is a needed organization in this community. I am in recovery from alcohol, drugs and bipolar disorder. I have finally found a place to call home. Thank you John Black, staff and all the volunteers atPeer Recovery Art Project.

I have been volunteering and showing art for the Peer Recovery Art Project gallery since its opening and for six months prior to their gallery opening. I can say for a fact that I would not of turned to art or giving it much though as a tool to use for an outlet without being introduced to this program. I have gained confidence in my ability as an artist since becoming affiliated with the PRAP gallery. I also greatly enjoy every minute I get to spend at the gallery volunteering. I love getting to help other artist find a home to share their works. The environment created by this program is so warm, loving and inviting. My only real wish for this program is that we get bigger so we can help more people!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the community. I have seen diffrent artist come in who have never felt accepted or good enough come in and find a place here. I have heard artist say that would of never show work or had confidence without our program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it bigger so we can reach more people. I would love to see us be able to help as many people as we can in our community!
