What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We discovered that in Pine Island, many people are struggling with loneliness and physical and mental health challenges. Miss Angie’s Place fills the need in the Pine Island community for arts-based programming that promotes the health and well-being for people of all ages. We offer a safe and welcoming space for people to heal and thrive, especially from marginalized communities including BIPOC, LGBTQ, and low-income families.

Charting impact

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

We know that physical, mental, and emotional health are all interconnected. Thus, we take a holistic approach to improving the health of the whole person. One way we achieve this is through physical activities, especially outdoor activities in nature. Physical activity is critical for youth in maintaining physical and mental health and is an effective way to relieve stress and anxiety. Research has shown many additional benefits to spending time in nature. “Contact with nature is associated with increases in happiness, subjective well-being, positive affect, positive social interactions and a sense of meaning and purpose in life, as well as decreases in mental distress.” (American Psychological Association, 2020) Our goal is to improve the physical health of our program participants, and improve their mood and wellbeing through physical activities and spending time in nature.

We aim to foster positive connections for youth with their peers and with caring adults and elders in our community. We teach youth communication and conflict management skills to help them have more positive interactions with their peers. We also provide connections to adults and elders to provide mentoring, teaching, and conversational skills. These positive interactions and connections promote resiliency, provide connectedness, and improve the well-being of our community as a whole.

We have a broad network of supporting people and organizations, to whom we reach out consistently when working to reach a common goal.
