The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in losses to some of our programs last year and continues to affect our ability to support the amazing programs our youth have come to love. However in spite of these challenges, WE RISE. OUr youth have converted our building into food support for community, have engaged virtual content to stay connected, and are now leading our strategic planning efforts! This summer we hope to open our offerings again with a handful of classes but WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Becoming a patron makes it easy to support our youth!
Consider setting up a recurring donation and watch ARTS Us grow! By becoming a patron, you will get newsletters, free event tickets, and more!
