Peer Support Academy receives Support from Fort Sanders Foundation

Posted on May 4, 2016 in Press Release

As a result of the monPeninsula Van purchased by Arts! fundsey raised  at the 2015 Artsclamation! event, Peninsula Peer Support Academy received a new Ford transit van. The van will be used to provide transportation to academy participants in Knox, Sevier, and Blount counties.

The Peer Support programs are grant funded but after years of cutbacks it has not been possible to purchase a vehicle with grant funds. The aging fleet of vehicles was becoming more expensive to keep on the road and it was obvious that they needed replacement. The Foundation understood this issue and put their energy into campaigning for a new vehicle.

Please know that your support of and participation in Artsclamation! has real results! If you would like to volunteer for this year’s event, contact Misty Brown at
