Artistic Academy students and staff were thrilled to facilitate a Tag Day to benefit Hope House. The event was held on June 19, 2009. Artistic Academy’s Mission Statement indicates, “We strive to exceed not only what is expected from us, but what we expect from ourselves.” The success of the Tag Day allowed Artistic Academy’s students to truly see what they can accomplish. The Academy raised $395.00 which was donated to assist Hope House with all of their worthy services. Hope House meets the social service needs of individuals and families in the community. They are highly effective in three key service areas: Behavioral Health, Senior Home Services, and services to individuals with HIV and AIDS.
