_ The Photo Studio
The Photo Studio program, launched in 2005 in collaboration with Good Shepherd Services New York, is an In-depth photography and creative arts program that integrates art therapy and community building activities for youth in long-term, short-term, and diagnostic foster care.
"PhotoForward has connected vulnerable teenage girls to programs and experiences most have never been exposed to...Allison has bought patience, love and dedication to the youth we serve day-to-day; she has also shared her wealth of experiences working with young people around the globe. Creative expression through photo and art is so crucial for a young person’s development and with every session Allison has tought the youth that their past experiences do not dictate their potential. From all the folks at GSS, we thank you PhotoForward."
