News from HALos!

HALos has had to stop meeting with clients at this time due to COVID-19.  We want to keep you all safe.  Please reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.  This is an incredible stressful time for everyone.  


--------


Check out our Facebook Page for our Art Challenge  - recognizing May as Mental Health Awareness Month.  HALos began the art challenge because art is a creative coping technique for the stresses of COVID-19 and May is mental health awareness month.


The following art forms were chosen for each week: 1st week drawing (pencil, charcoal. markers), 2nd painting (on paper, canvas, fabric), 3rd week sculpture (playdough, clay, wood, metal), 4th photography/videoing. Don’t own a camera and enjoy drawing. No worries draw again! These weekly suggestions were just an example of the different art forms that you could do. There is no fee to participate. You can use any form of art medium. 


There is no size requirement. Please take a picture of your completed project and post it directly on HALos' Facebook or message us through the HALos page and we will post it for you. You can sign your name or remain anonymous. If there is something that you would like to say about your project please post your thoughts. If you have had a family member or friend die from the virus or by any other cause you could use this as an opportunity to create a memorial. The posted art work will be kept in a folder and will become the property of HALos. Due to what HALos stands for the HALos board will monitor face book for inappropriate art content.

Camp HUGS 2019

This year's Camp HUGS theme was Peace: Looking at how peace plays a role in our world, community, and self.  The kids and volunteers partook in games and activities throughout the day that focused on finding peace and sharing it with others.  Each child was able to take home a bag full of goodies to help them find peace within themselves and teach others about peace, thanks to a grant from the Otis Thompson Foundation.
