30 Years of Serving & Empowering the Community: CHARG Celebrates Major Milestone at Art Show

Thank you to all of our friends and community members who were able to attend CHARG’s 30th Anniversary Art Show and Fundraiser event on November 7 at the Space Gallery! It was our pleasure to celebrate this major milestone with you!

In addition to the celebration of our wonderful CHARG community, this event raised nearly $28,000, we sold all but one of our silent auction packages, and ten of our featured artists sold their artwork at the event.

One of the most meaningful parts of the evening was when three CHARG consumers and board members – Barbara Quarton, Larry Brown, and Jim Jochum – shared their stories and personal experiences of how they’ve been involved with CHARG Resource Center over the years. They shared how the positive impact community support and effective treatment programs have made in their lives.

During the program, guests were also excited to hear Hakeem Furious–a wordsmith and Denver slam poet who uses his artistic talents to talk about mental health problems that plague the community and create safe spaces to talk about those problems.

The incredibly generous spirit of our community at this event will help CHARG continue to fund our programs that serve and empower individuals managing mental illness. We couldn’t do it without you!

It was a full house at the Space Gallery.

Art of Wellbeing | CHARG Resource Center 30th Anniversary Celebration
Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019 | 5-8 pm
Space Gallery | 400 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, CO 80204



Wellbeing is the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. Wellbeing is an art form, or a journey – it is more than just health care and bubble baths – and it’s something to continually work toward. Wellbeing encompasses being part of a supportive community and that is what CHARG is all about! 

We invite all artists AND non-professional artists who use creative expression to enhance their mental wellness to submit their artwork for our anniversary event. When you submit your application, share a bit about how your artistic and creative process has or can aid in mental wellbeing (optional).

Make an impact as well!
Event proceeds will provide funding for high-impact, life-saving mental health services that empower individuals living with mental illness to take control of their wellbeing. Our programs include individual counseling, outpatient psychiatric services, peer support, skills training and an employment program, recreational activities, medication management,  support monitoring overall health, and a homeless outreach program.
