Fellowship Place has been awarded a $3,000 grant award from the Petit Family Foundation for the Expressive Arts program, which utilizes artistic expression in various forms as a therapeutic tool. “Fellowship Place is very grateful for this support from the Petit Family Foundation” says Executive Director, Mary A. Guerrera, “we are honored to be chosen as a 2020 award recipient. The expressive arts program has been an important outlet and resource for our clients during the coronavirus crisis.”
The Petit Family Foundation honors the memories of Jennifer Hawke-Petit, Hayley Elizabeth Petit, and Michaela Rose Petit by continuing the kindness, idealism and activism that defined their lives. The Foundation’s funds are given to foster the education of young people, especially women in the sciences; to improve the lives of those affected by chronic illnesses; and to support efforts to protect and help those affected by violence.
