  1. Greetings, my name is Alison Kase and I am investigating possible art therapy for children of the area who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. I am a Broad Channel (think Rockaway) homeowner and we have been devastated by the storm, along with our surround communities of Rockaway, Breezy Point, Howard Beach, Staten Island and Brooklyn.

    I am doing field investigative work for an organization that is looking to fund an arts program for children coping with the after-affects of the storm. Many of these children’s families did not evacuate and there are certainly signs of wear on these children. If you could please reach out to me and let me know what programs might be available for children and teens, I would be most appreciative. Thank you for your anticipated quick response.

    1. Alison, Thanks for your interest and sorry for my delay in replying. The best source for receiving the most up to date information of art therapists working with Hurricane Sandy victims is to contact the American Art Therapy Association’s office. They can be reached at: 888-290-0878. Please check out their website at: http://www.arttherapy.org.
