Julie Valentine Center
Greenville, South Carolina – Julie Valentine Center (JVC) is a nonprofit organization that provides free, confidential services to sexual assault and child abuse survivors and their families, serving hundreds throughout the Upstate of South Carolina. In 2022, PAC partnered with JVC to offer stand-alone art and music therapy programs for teens and adults to help aid in their recovery and healing process.
In 2023, PAC continued our partnership with Julie Valentine Center, integrating art and music therapy into JVC’s support groups for teens and adults throughout the Upstate. Working closely with JVC’s therapists, we ensure that the art and music therapy sessions co-opt with the support group to ensure unity in PAC’s and JVC’s mission to provide healing and hope. In addition, PAC is providing stand-alone workshops for groups to participate throughout the year.
Art and music therapy continues to play an integral part in the healing process for those JVC serves.
