Words hurt. They can also heal.

At New Day, we do everything in our power to improve the lives of at-risk youth. We help put kids on a path towards responsible adulthood. Part of that is encouraging them with positive words, in contrast to the many negative words they may have heard throughout their lives. The Healing Words Project allows you to provide inspirational quotes that will be uniquely placed into the artwork of renowned local artists. The artwork will provide positive motivation and affirmation, while raising money for their basic, daily needs

Healing Words Project Details

Your donation to the Healing Words Project will add an inspirational quote provided by you to an original work of art from a local artist. These quotes will greet at-risk youth every day for one year, giving them a new perspective on life. Once the year is up, the artwork is yours to keep, or you may choose to donate the piece to the New Day Safe Home and Life Skills Academy. All proceeds raised will provide for critical needs for at-risk youth. But most importantly, your donations will provide hope for kids who desperately need it.
