ART THERAPISTS MAKING THINGS HAPPEN!
Peggy Gulshen, LMFT, ATR-BC, founded and developed the Children's Bereavement Art Group (CBAG) program in April of 1985. The first group of five latency-aged children were grieving the deaths of parents and siblings. Peggy worked for Sutter Hospice, serving the child family members of hospice patients. Many of these bereaved kids would inquire about other children that Peggy visited, also grieving the death of a loved one. It was clear that they were seeking out the camaraderie of other children experiencing loss.

Helping Bay Area artists who are most in need get an immediate $500. Artists Now was created by Zoo Labs to bring financial support to those artists directly affected by the economic challenges caused by COVID-19, specifically POC, Women, and LGBTQIA+ artists, so that they can continue to create the art and love we need.
The Safety Net Fund is a non-profit designed to help support artists in the Bay Area during the COVID-19 crisis. The maximum grant is $500 per person per month, and the number of grants per month is dependent upon the funds raised. Grants will be evaluated in the order received.
