ArtWorks, The Naomi Cohain Foundation, is dedicated to the establishment and support of creative and performing art exhibitions, titled
, that feature the works of children and young adults suffering from life-threatening and chronic illnesses
ArtWorks recognizes the need these children and their siblings have to express their innermost thoughts and feelings, create an escape from the reality of their current situation and allow others to enter their hearts and minds. The exhibition provides all participants with something to work towards and look forward to during the many months of preparation.
exhibitions create a supportive environment where young patients and their families are honored for their courage and celebrated for sharing their life experiences. Through our continuous efforts in raising awareness about the importance of art therapy, we hope to eventually raise significant funds that will enable us to help implement creative art therapy programs in hospitals that are financially unable to support them.

CityKids’ mission is to engage and develop diverse young people to positively impact their lives, their communities and the world. We accomplish that mission through programs that help young people ages 13 to 19 to use their voices for positive change. CityKids uses the arts to engage and train young people to create positive and powerful solutions to issues impacting their lives. Young people learn to improve their own educational status, become agents for social change, take action in community projects, and carry positive messages to their peers. And they have a great time doing it.
