Salt Lake City, UT: Eva Carlston Academy, a residential treatment center for adolescent girls, has renewed their season tickets to local venues and reasserted their committment to volunteering in the community. Since their beginning, Eva Carlston has supported local businesses, agencies, and groups both by volunteering their time and by being patrons.
As a part of the city, they find that community engagement and community partnerships not only increase the quality of the program they provide, but also becomes essential to the therapeutic process. Noel Koons, a therapist at Eva Carlston, said, “I've seen it many times: these girls are uplifted and inspired as they engage in sporting and art events. They especially find benefit through service to others. These community events the girls go to nudge them toward increased insight, greater calm, and clearer life perspective.”
Recently, Eva Carlston renewed their season tickets to three groups: Utah Royals FC (Utah’s professional women’s soccer team), Pioneer Theater Company (one of the professional theatre companies in Utah), and Utah Symphony and Opera. They are looking forward to great seasons for all three. In addition to the more long term seasons listed above, Eva Carlston has made plans to return to the Sundance Film Festival, the Tumbleweeds Film Festival, and the Utah Shakespeare Festival in the coming year - all of which have been student favorites in past years.
Within the community, Eva Carlston will continue to volunteer regularly with the Tracy Aviary, This is the Place Heritage Park, the Waste Wise Program (at the Downtown Farmers Market), UMOCA, the Utah Arts Festival, the Utah Film Center, and various other agencies and businesses.
These partnerships, patronages, and volunteerism provide invaluable experiences for Eva Carlston’s clients and help them to increase awareness and discover interests. Eva Carlston looks forward to many more years of being involved in and supporting the community.
