Trillium's Hope Store allows the members of Trillium Center to generate income from their beautiful creations. Sales also provide revenue to our private nonprofit mental health support center where we offer hope and empowerment at no cost to people living in recovery with mental illness.
Some of Trillium Center’s members are so creative that they have to let their inspiration flow. Some use painting as a coping skill to manage their symptoms, others enjoy making jewelry or designing t-shirts.
We started running out of room on the Trillium Center walls to display our members’ art. We decided to turn some of their paintings into "Hope Works Art Cards." We took those cards, and jewelry, t shirts and other creations out in our community for sale at events and fairs. The community received our products so well that we created “Trillium’s Hope Store” online to reach more people.
All profits from “Trillium’s Hope Store” are shared between the artists who live with mental health issues and Trillium Center. The services that Trillium provides to our community are essential to people living with mental illness because members go into crisis less and feel a sense of purpose and connection.
