One of The Glitter Foundation’s first grant awards proved to be a win for both the newly established charity and children admitted to the David Lawrence Center’s Crisis Stabilization Unit.

With the $2,600 grant, the not-for-profit mental health and substance abuse treatment facility serving children, adults and families was able to launch a new holistic initiative using art therapy to help children in crisis improve their ability to communicate in healthy ways, increase self-expression, provide and reinforce emotional regulation skills and increase their sense of well-being while on the unit.

The program was held twice a month in the inpatient mental health unit where children experiencing a psychiatric crisis receive brief voluntary and involuntary evaluation and treatment. Groups were conducted by an independent registered art therapist and mental health counselor and services were provided as a complementary service designed to enhance their treatment experience.

Mary Ann Guerra Director of Acute Care and Emergency Services stated, “The Glitter Foundation greatly impacted the children and adolescents in our care who experience serious mental illness, trauma and challenges in living. This generous funding enabled the children to utilize the creative process involved in artistic self-expression to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress and achieve insight while also increasing self-esteem and self-awareness.”

David Lawrence Center relies on community collaborations and partnerships such as this to help grow child and adolescent services; expand financial resources and invest in innovative, holistic clinical programming so that more children in need can have access to life-saving, life-changing mental health and substance abuse treatment.

CREATING AN EDUCATIONAL GIFT OF SHINE
Naples, FL, September 27, 2013 – “One who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten,” a common quote by many, is uniquely adopted by The GLITTER Foundation for the educational community as a gift to shine. Amanda Jaron of A. JARON Fine Jewelry, the founder and president of The GLITTER Foundation, Inc, is known in the community as an energetic philanthropist and has fulfilled her dream to create a foundation that supports the future of the community…educational funding. Complete with a board of directors and a sparkle council, the foundation’s primary focus is fundraising events that will support future applicants selected to receive funding for higher education, teachers and unique programs.

One program that Amanda Jaron has supported as a chairperson and volunteer, PACE for Girls, presented a full circle opportunity when a former PACE girl, Jasmine Hall, contacted her as a recent college graduate offering her services as a web design contractor. Mrs. Jaron has provided Jasmine with not only an opportunity to create her branding touch to The GLITTER Foundation’s website but also a supportive mentorship as a business woman.

The GLITTER Foundation will host its launch party on February 4, 2014. For more information about The GLITTER Foundation, Inc., visit www.theglitterfoundation.org.
