In an effort to continually increase the quality of our agency and services, Free Arts was interested in learning about how other nonprofits around our state are raising money and providing trauma-informed programs for children. As a strong arts community and one committed to supporting children and families, (not to mention the cooler weather) Flagstaff was the perfect place for us to visit. This past week, the staff at Free Arts was lucky enough to meet with organizations in Flagstaff, and throughout Coconino County, who work with children in need. Some staff met specifically with the members of the arts community. Staff selected organizations of interest to the particular line of work at Free Arts. The organizations included Big Brothers Big Sisters of Flagstaff, Flagstaff Arts Council, Coconino Coalition for Children and Youth, Museum of Northern Arizona, and Lowell Observatory. We want to thank all of the organizations who hosted us. We came away more determined and inspired than ever.
