No Veteran should bear the burden alone.

CBAW is a charitable organization that builds healthy and connected communities through workshops led by professional artists where veterans and civilians share creative expression, mutual understanding, and support.


Build Community.

Give Support.


I am alive because of the safe space provided by your programs.

All the feels. This morning’s session was magical and mystical and exactly what I needed. Thank you for creating a vessel that holds all our tears and joys and sorrows and dreams and, most importantly, each other.

Wondering and wandering with CBAW is essential to my well-being.

I really appreciate the vulnerability and authenticity that the CBAW facilitators lead with… they all have their own ways of making a space feel comforting and safe and I am so grateful for the good soul medicine they each share.

I’m so glad I attended tonight! Creating art in community is so good for my soul.

I learned a lot about poetry and communication during this workshop. I feel safe to be vulnerable and share my writing. It is helpful and nourishing listening to the insights of the participants. I really miss it when I am not able to attend.

Thank you for creating this community. I feel heard even when I don’t speak and seen even when my camera is off. Friday Morning Poetry Church is the touchstone around which I organize my life some weeks. CBAW sustains me.

Wednesday Art is an important time in my week. I get to create something and not worry about the result. It’s one of the few times during the week that I dedicate some time to me.

You are teaching me that I have something to share, [that] I am not alone, and my voice can be heard. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Magnificent workshop = magnificent experience. Thank you for making this possible.
