Premier Arts Collective (PAC) and Triune Mercy Center (TMC) are pleased to announce a new partnership, providing art and music therapy programs for those Triune serves in Greenville, SC.
“I have always had a heart for Triune Mercy Center,” says Gene Krcelic, President of PAC. “I have experienced firsthand the incredible work they do serving our homeless community. Triune has been, and continues to be, a beacon of hope here in the heart of Greenville and we are thrilled to partner with them by using the arts as another vehicle for healing and restoration.”
The programs will be led by PAC therapists Alison Hughey (music) and Courtney Chandler (art). Closed-group art and music therapy sessions will run for 12 weeks, serving those experiencing homelessness.
“We are absolutely thrilled that Premier Arts Collective approached us about a possible partnership that is now coming to fruition,” says Jennifer Fouse Sheorn, Pastor and Director of Triune Mercy Center. “Through PAC’s excellent art and music therapy programs we will be able to expand transformative services for our parishioners. It has been proven, especially among people affected by trauma, that art and music aid in coping as well as healing. We’re most grateful for this partnership with PAC and look forward to working together to fulfill our mission of providing life-changing opportunities for the disadvantaged.”
This is Premier Arts Collective’s third program launched in the Upstate in 2022, further accomplishing their goal of serving those in the local community who have been affected by trauma and abuse. Alexis Krcelic, Director of Programs at Premier Arts Collective, says, “We love working with those in the Upstate community and know that this will be an impactful program for all who step through Triune’s doors.”
