Hands of Hope Mural

The Hands of Hope Mural is behind the City-County Library and is to be a place to raise awareness for mental health. We'd like the community to help us paint rocks of encouragement for people to either take or leave when they visit the mural. This will be an ongoing collaboration to create a beautiful, welcoming space for all.
