My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Coachart Org, Santa Monica, CA, USA
I have worked at CoachArt for over a year now and it has completely changed my life! What drew me in was the mission and what has kept me here is the fierce passion our staff, board and volunteers have for carrying out the mission. Additionally, CoachArt's inclusion of siblings in our program absolutely underscores the importance of bringing a holistic approach to caring for children with chronic illnesses. It reminds us that diseases like cancer and sickle cell anemia don't just impact the patient.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing our kids being bold in the activities they do, knowing they have a support base in CoachArt- like the girl who grudgingly joined our adaptive kayaking trip with her brothers and ended up being the last to leave the lake, or the boy who won a karate competition after battling a year of chemo.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Continue to increase funding for unique programming, engage more working artists and athletes to serve as volunteers and encourage more community facilities to join us as Program Partners.
