Happy New Year! Put this date on your 2019 calendar!

With a nod to Anna’s Cuban roots, “HavANNA Nights” will be a party to remember! As we appreciate and recognize Anna’s 35 years of service to 180 Turning Lives Around, we reflect upon the many programs she has established and led for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Her leadership has guided nearly every local service available for victims and their children. Using nationally proven models in the field of domestic violence and sexual assault, her work has impacted thousands of survivors in Monmouth County. She has garnered the support of a vast number of volunteers and donors, as well as her dedicated staff of counselors and social workers. Anna’s 35 years of saving and changing lives in Monmouth County gives us all the reason to celebrate her at our May 3, 2019 event! 
Please plan to join us in her honor and help 180 continue our work of empowering individuals affected by domestic violence to find the strength and courage to turn their life around.

180’s Amanda’s Easel Exhibit to be hosted by The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Kitchen, Red Bank – October 17, 2018

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and we have a very special evening planned to raise awareness about domestic and sexual violence in Monmouth County.
I hope you will join us on Wednesday, October 17, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Kitchen in Red Bank, NJ for 180’s Amanda’s Easel Creative Arts Therapies Exhibit, “Rock and River: Obstacles and Flow In Survival.” All community members are invited to join us. This event is kindly hosted once again by our friends at the Soul Kitchen and requires no entry fee; RSVP at amandaf@180nj.org
The theme for this year’s project focuses on the concept of river and rocks. Depicted through the use of natural elements like water, rock, pebbles and stones, the ebb and flow of life symbolize the recurrent or rhythmical pattern, of life’s journey. Like a ripple in seemingly still water, or a quickly changing current that seems to carry us in a different direction, our ability to be resilient, strong and willing to change is part of our growth and healing. Using this two-sided metaphor, participants have used rocks and other found natural objects to create their personal vision and perspective of how change and obstacles have influenced their life journey through domestic violence. The metaphor of life’s journey being like the river that flows through obstacles and challenges yet never gives up, is significant in the fight against family violence.
We are so pleased to once again partner with our friends at the JBJ Soul Kitchen who have generously hosted us for many years, to showcase this artwork. After this initial showing, the exhibit will travel around Monmouth County at colleges, libraries, and schools to continue the conversation, outreach and awareness efforts.
For further information, or to showcase this exhibit at your location, please contact Cindi Westendorf, Program Coordinator of 180’s Amanda’s Easel Creative Arts Therapies
