Our projects


Our latest way to be h!p is all about taking pictures! #zaneography introduces youth to the benefits of therapeutic photography. This program offers simple suggestions to help shift perspective, express yourself in a nonverbal way and create moments of gratitude. Currently, we are offering a “Photo Walk”, tailored to small groups. If you are interested in this for your group, please contact us for more details!
