A Window Between Worlds is a Venice-based nonprofit dedicated to using art as a healing tool to empower and transform individuals and communities impacted by violence and trauma. With 23 years of experience working in the field of domestic violence, the demand for AWBW's healing art interventions has grown beyond the shelters to reach new populations of trauma survivors. They have begun work with returning combat veterans and are now building toward serving even more survivors seeking a future free from violence. Art is proving time and again to be an effective tool for healing and change, and it is thanks to supporters that AWBW is able to offer trainings at little or no cost to their partners. As a recent Children's Windows participant recently shared, "I feel proud to share my story and maybe it will help someone else when they see my art."
