About ProCure Art

 

ProCure Art (PCA) is a Washington-D.C. based international humanitarian nonprofit dedicated to improving the physical and emotional wellbeing of people and communities affected by adversity using art therapy psychosocial support. PCA enables disadvantaged individuals and groups to access professional art therapy services in order to promote their dignity, creativity and confidence, and to empower them to transcend adversarial life experiences with perseverance and a positive outlook. Integrity, compassion, professionalism and cultural humility are core values of PCA.

 

Incorporated in Washington D.C. in November 2015 as an international nonprofit, PCA is awaiting its 501(c)3 tax-exempt status approval by the IRS. PCA is governed by a strong Executive Board and group of technical advisers, and is run by a small start-up team. The organization has a track record of international activities and has upcoming projects in the pipeline.
