About Us


Now in our 25th year, Smith Center for Healing and the Arts is a Washington, DC-based nonprofit that provides comprehensive cancer support resources through two primary service areas:

Health & Wellness

Arts & Creativity

Smith Center develops and promotes healing practices that explore physical, emotional, and mental wellness and lead to life-affirming changes for those affected by cancer. Our work is based on a single profound idea: that everyone harbors the innate ability to heal, even in the face of life’s most serious challenges. We provide resources to those impacted by cancer and other illnesses, their caregivers, health care providers, and the community.

Our goal is to support the people we work with in taking their next step in healing, whatever that may be. We encourage healing by expanding access to integrative and complementary medicine practices for individuals living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis. To meet the whole-person needs of those living with cancer, Smith Center specializes in offering psychosocial support, which treats the social, psychological, emotional, spiritual, and functional aspects of cancer, from prevention through survivorship to end-of-life and bereavement.
