Review for FOUNDATION FOR PHOTO ART IN HOSPITALS INC, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After building our new hospital here in Rooks County Kansas, we realized the great impact art has on healing. The Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals, Inc. was so generous to provide beautiful photography that has helped our patient's, their family and friends and our staff realize the power of art and imagination. The gifts from this incredible foundation continue to touch peoples lives daily and has encouraged great artists from our area become interested in this powerful philathropic model. We had a patient who verbalized so honestly what the photo's have done for her. "I have had such misery and pain in my life the last few years, these pictures help me escape from those moments and help me become stronger." This foundation makes a very meaningful difference in the lives of many.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their honesty, mission and integrity.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Through email I have found this foundations founder Elaine Poggi to be kind, personable and truly a person who thought about how to help others and found a great way to do it.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help other hospitals become a more healing environment.

Ways to make it better...

We had an awesome experience. I would not change a thing.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Finances and their ability to get the word out to other artists who might contribute to their cause.
