We are working with agencies closely, at this time of isolation and being forced to stay inside, possibly with an individual who is feeling more irritated, angry or violent….
GET HELP AND LEAVE IF YOU ARE FEELING THREATENED AND CALL 911
Please take a moment and pass this along if you know someone struggling with violence in their relationships, home or work..

Cancellation of the 21st Heart of Imagination Day/COVID 19 update and cancellations
We have been so proud of the is amazing project created by our Board Member at Large, Shelley Irish, 21 years ago!
We have met the most fabulous volunteers, have served over 600+ children every year with face painting and art, got the opportunity to make sure our community knows there is support when you are facing crisis such as family violence, stalking, bullying, online cyber stalking and homelessness. We have reached over 15,000 children every year, and at no time, did anyone receive payment or salaries, including myself.
This is important, because when you care compassionate about others, especially our children who will one day be our infrastructure for our aging selves. For they deserve shelter, food, love and security every step of the way.
This year, as of May, we will be canceling The Heart of Imagination Day and Art of My Heart for Mothers Day mobile pottery painting. I thank Timothy and Shital and her daughter, plus many more that give up their day to face paint, and amazing creativity, as well!! This event would also lack an enormous fun factor without our magician extroidinaire, Ned Nedbalski, who has give over a decade and a half to making children of all ages squeal with delight at his magic tricks, his gut splitting jokes, and that includes me!
We would not be able to do this event without the support of the Cherry Creek Public Library for 21 years!! Thank you!
I thank Darla and Leigh for their tireless serves on this project and know we will be back in the fall and winter stronger than ever!
We are still working on the Pencil Box Project, so keep posted on that upcoming info!
