Hi,
Welcome to this listserve. Its a wonderful resource for many, including me.
I also work for a NPO, Non-Profit Organization, call the Expressive Arts
Outreach Project. We are part of the College of Education at Western Illinois
University in Macomb, Illinois, USA.

I'm was so happy to read that your goals include Children-at-Risk and Art-as-
Communication (rather than art therapy). These are some of our goals, as well
as, offering training workshops for teachers of children with a wide range of
disabilities and resources for adapting art tools and materials. For more
information about the Expressive Arts Outreach Project check out our web site at
www.mprojects.wiu.edu/art

Also look at other web sites that talk about strong family involvement and long
term projects like the schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy. More information about
this can be found at:

Best of luck on your project.
