ARROW Project debuts Staunton PRIDE “Warm Room”! ARROW Project joined the city of Staunton, Va. in opening its heart and streets to welcome the first ever  #StauntonPride 

 As part of our growing partnership with the  Shenandoah LGBTQ Center, ARROW hosted a Warm Room, located in the LGBT Tech/Innovation HUB building. Warm Room hosts consisted of a group of 20 mental health- and energy work professionals from Staunton, Harrisonburg, Charlottesville, and surrounding areas. They offered festival-goers a supportive, affirmative (and cool!) space to rest, with the option of speaking with a mental health professional, getting access to mental health resources, and/or experiencing Healing Touch and Access BARS therapy. Individuals also had the opportunity to share their unique stories of what it means to be a part of the LGBTQ community, offer feedback on current mental health and community interests, and share ways they would be willing to engage in ARROW’s work.Executive Director Sabrina Burress reflects, “All in all it was a remarkable day full of warmth and healing. The Warm Room was a beautiful representation of what it looks like when mental health professionals unite to serve one great good. We are excited to see how this partnership continues to grow.” If you are interested in learning more about the Warm Room, ARROW Project, or mental health in our community in general,  connect with us on Facebook or  email.
