About Beads of Courage, Inc.
Beads of Courage, Inc. is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and teens coping with serious illness, their families, and the clinicians who care for them through our Arts-in-Medicine Programs. We believe in creating a context for caring transactions to transpire through our community and encouragement programs.
Since 2005, Beads of Courage, Inc. has established collaborative partnerships in caring with hundreds of hospitals nationally and internationally and worked with several community organizations to make healing happen through the use of beads as a historical art form.

2) To model collaborative strategies to strengthen human connectedness through the gift of beads that bestow honor and express human caring;
3) To contribute to the science, practice and implementation of evidence-based interventions.
