HELMS is a 501c3 non-profit organization created to honor the life and vision of the late artist Ryan Giambattista.
Our vision is a dynamic arts organization that supports artist development at all levels.
Our mission is a collaborative effort between various groups and individuals , utilizing art as a tool to assist individuals struggling with mental health issues, developmental, and physical disabilities.
Our goal is to promote art, in all of its mediums, to a broader audience, allowing these individuals to work towards overcoming their struggles by participating in their community, building meaningful relationships, and engaging the public.
We are currently working to provide art therapy services to those most in need throughout the Mahoning Valley.
