What is CHAP’s DEI statement?

Because of our mission, CHAP has chosen to include accessibility in our statement so we intentionally use the acronym IDEA.

The CHAP IDEA Statement:

The Children’s Healing Art Project (CHAP) believes inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (IDEA) are fundamental core values in driving our mission to bring the healing power of art to children and families facing medical challenges. We are committed to supporting IDEA as we fulfill our mission whether in hospitals, in our studio, or through our community outreach programs.  CHAP embraces people from all walks of life and is committed to broadening the community we serve with greater understanding and self-reflection.

In demonstration of our commitment, we have established tangible policy and governance goals for ongoing IDEA assessment and integration across all aspects of CHAP’s organizational and community engagement. We evaluate all our programs through an equity lens to enhance the joy and freedom of creativity to those we serve.
