Local Temple, High School and KYC Clients Work Together to Create a Collaborative Art Project

May 26, 2015 at 4:01 pm 1 comment

There are many wonderful opportunities available for groups and individuals to partner with Kenneth Young Center (KYC). These do not always include monetary donations or an ongoing volunteer commitment. Some groups have found unique projects to implement which will help our clients in special ways.

One such project was a joint effort between Shinnyo-en Buddhist Temple, Elk Grove High School and clients from KYC’s Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR) group.

The three groups worked together to create unique pieces of art representing hope, community and recovery. All of these elements are important in fulfilling our mission to help people feel good, do better and find solutions.

On Tuesday, May 19 an unveiling reception was hosted at Kenneth Young Center located 1001 Rohlwing Road in Elk Grove Village, IL. Representatives from each group were present at the intimate reception. The groups spoke to the audience about why they wanted to become involved with the project and how they were optimistic that the pieces of art would help KYC’s clients.

We hope that the artwork will inspire others to become more involved with helping their community, encourage our clients to have hope; and remind clients and their loved ones that recovery from mental illness is possible.

Without support from individuals and groups in the community we would be unable to continually deliver a high level of service to the children, adults and seniors that we assist on a daily basis. We encourage you to join us in our efforts to change lives.
