Gandara/ArtSong Exhibit at the BING Arts Center kicks off with opening reception Thursday, June 9th at 5:30pm!

This year’s exhibit “Gestures of Legacy” will feature works of art created by Gandara Center’s youth who participate in our ArtSong Arts Enrichment Program. Founded by Amy Porchelli in 2011, ArtSong uses art instruction and innovative concepts to empower youth through creativity.

The Gandara Center in collaboration with ArtSong provides a fine arts specialty program to disadvantaged youth in our residential programs that inspires original artistic works, develops learning skills, and promotes art education and personal development. Participants benefit with hands on learning, self-expression, motivation and self-confidence while participating in a therapeutic environment.

Big thanks to our friends at the BING Arts Center for hosting the exhibit which will run through from June 4th to June 18th. The BING is located at 716 Sumner Ave. in Springfield. Donations for entry to the exhibit are greatly appreciated. All proceeds to benefit the ArtSong program.

Join us for the opening reception on June 9th at 5:30pm.

Come see some amazing art and listen to our youth as they express themselves through spoken word, music, and of course their art masterpieces!

All art will be for sale with all proceeds going straight to the artist!

1st Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt

The Springfield Family Resource Center is inviting families with children 12 and under to come out and enjoy an afternoon of fun, at The 1st Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt. There will be dancing, face painting, and much more. It’s free to go, and kids will also have a chance to meet the Easter Bunny and his friends.

The Springfield Family Resource Center provides help with navigating through housing, education, courts and legal systems as well as health insurance, EBT and behavioral health services. If a specific need cannot be met at the center, trained staff will point the family in the right direction to obtain services they need elsewhere. Numerous events and support groups are provided free of charge. Drop-in platform, no appointment necessary.

Come for the cause, stay for the yogurt! August 30th

Come run or walk with us on Sunday, August 30th in beautiful downtown Northampton and help support the well-being of the most vulnerable children, adults and families in our region. As a thank you, you’ll enjoy local, healthy and delicious frozen yogurt thanks to the good people at Go-Berry!

All proceeds from the 5K will go directly to our Family Fund. The fund was established to help provide our clients with needs often not met through our services alone. Going this extra step in giving our clients the support that they deserve aside from the services they receive is what we take pride in. We believe in the whole being and understand the hardships people face may be affecting their overall health and the choices that they are able to make.

Your contribution could buy a bed for a child who has spent her first six years sleeping on the floor. You could be providing an outfit for a recent graduate of our substance abuse recovery home to wear as she starts the journey towards independent living and begins her job search. Or perhaps you’ll be funding little league expenses so that one of our youth can have his first taste of what it means to be part of something. It’s amazing what an empowering effect a recreational activity can add to the life of a child that has so little.

Come for the cause, Stay for the yogurt!
