Where we work

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our goal highest priority is establish a brick & mortar site in which all of services can be available to the public.

Launching our new website. Developing Fund-raising campaigns. Collaborating with other non-profits and businesses in our area to consolidate our efforts of establishing a single location for our public services.

We are confident that with increased public awareness of our organization's uniqueness, and our ability to collaborate and integrate with other organizations that we can meet our goal within the fiscal year 0f 2019-2020.

We have already secured a working relationship with a business location for holding classes, and we are about to launch a fund raising campaign with a very large corporate entity in which our share of the funds raised will exceed 90% on the dollar because the event's cost is being absorb by the sponsoring entity.

We relocated the majority of our operations to Tucson AZ. We still have an ongoing relationship and an exhibit at Forest Park museum in Iowa. We had four Art exhibitions in the greater Des Moines area including being the first organization to display Art work inside Hoyt Sherman place that was not from the Mid-1800 circa period of HSP's collection. We also worked with DMARC in Des Moines to provide information services to Food Pantries for assisting individual with food-security issues and learning new skills to improve their heal & well-being by eating & cooking with better products, tools, and practical recipes. We also provided meal-planning for individuals with debilitating conditions, with great results in that those individuals reported significant health improvements. Since coming to Tucson we have provided two ballet/dance workshops, and established an online presence that includes access to all of our services. Our virtual gallery has over 100 photos of Art available to anyone who can access our site on the internet (worldwide), and our local massage therapy program has served veterans from the area's military bases, and provided therapeutic care to elderly and cancer-survivors who are either in current chemotherapy treatment or are in remission. We are looking forward to a dynamic and impactful year!
