Company Overview: Youthville, a program division of EmberHope, specializes in foster care, parent support, residential treatment and counseling. Our highly skilled staff uses evidenced-based programs to serve hundreds of children and families each year who have experienced severe trauma or whose families are at-risk and need help.

On August 1st, we took a trip to the Old Town Square to watch local artists create chalk art and attempted to create our own “drawings”. It was amazing the masterpieces we saw, and the attendance, considering the heat that day. They had face painters, live music and other booths.

The Chalk Art Fest is a free annual event held to raise awareness and support for EmberHope, and local artists.

Here are some of the awesome sights we saw:
