CAATINGA! Art & Nature After School Program

CAATINGA! Art and Nature after school program teaches children valuable life skills through art and nature.

Ms. Janis and Ms. Melissa started CAATINGA! only two short years ago. We were excited with our rapid growth and success!  With countless hours of hard work, energy and dedication we soon found our place in the community, with loyal, happy parents and children.  Because of this success our plan was to rent another room, add more children to our roster and hire another teacher.  Then the schools closed when the pandemic hit and our future became uncertain.  CAATINGA!,  along with many other small businesses has applied for numerous financial aid options to no avail.  We feel so much gratitude toward our amazing parents that have been able to help us during April and hopefully May. 

Your contribution to our Go Fund Me will enable us to maintain our facility and stay current on our financial obligations. Our goal is to continue realizing our dream for ourselves and our community.  Ms. Janis and Ms. Melissa greatly appreciate your support.
