The Wayward Society is founded on the principles of inclusivity, community and accessibility to support services and expressive arts for individuals and families in crisis.

Our resources and support come with NO COST to families EVER. 

The arts provide a powerful outlet for addressing emotional and/or problem behaviors.  A holistic approach to learn new skills and talents, to express one's thoughts and ideas in both creative and therapeutic ways. Expressive arts can offer victims of trauma ways cope with painful experiences by fostering resiliency, problem-solving skills, and autonomy, but more so, it ignites a sense of purpose and belonging.  It builds community and shows that the world DOES still have some good in it. It creates a world where all things are truly possible, because THEY ARE.
