Betty’s Hope, a program of Warrick Dunn Charities, was created in 2012 to bring the issue of unresolved grief to the forefront in the movement to support young people and their mental wellness. On National Children’s Grief Awareness Day,Thursday, November 20, 2014 from 5:30pm - 7:00p at the Family Youth & Service Center the subject of grief will be creatively explored. Artworks made by youth that have completed the Betty’s Hope program will be displayed and sold alongside works from local artists, community members and from Warrick Dunn Charities Founder, Warrick Dunn. Betty’s Hope is a program that supports the children and teens of Baton Rouge, by offering grief support in a peer group environment that is relevant, responsive, and fun. All services offered by Betty’s Hope are free of charge. This exploration creates a meaningful canvas for kids, and the adults who care about them, to find the tools and resources that help them realize that their loss is not their whole story but a key piece to what and who they will become. Through mobile outreach, resources, and support programming for youth and their families, Betty’s Hope has created a safe and empowering environment for young people and communities to heal. The evening will include remarks from community leaders, a silent auction of art from local artists as well as sports memorabilia, light hors d’oeuvres provided by Triumph Kitchen, a lighted balloon release, and artworks completed by students of our Betty’s Hope program on display & available for purchase . Please join us for an evening of heart-filled moments of loss and a celebration of hope through artistry.
